Shouldn't the question word be the ones that gets the suffix? Like "misin"?

The question word can only get personal endings and the past tense markers.

"senin" is in the genitive case and rightfully belongs on "senin" which can be "your" or in this case "yours." If you say "misin" on the end, it would be asking something like "Are you the cars?"
