I'm working with linking, transitive and intransitive verbs. For this sentence, do I need to write it as a statement? I think it is a linking verb. Intransitive?
"What is the most popular song in the country this week?"

    "What is the most popular song in the country this week?"

    That is a question.

    The verb, "is," is a linking verb.

  • Grammar -

    Is it also intransitive?

  • Grammar -

    All linking verbs are intransitive -- they cannot have direct objects following them.

  • Grammar -

    Can What be a subject? Or is song the subject?

  • Grammar -

    In this sentence, "What" is the subject and "song" is the predicate noun (also called predicate nominative).
