"Et que font ces groupes ?"

Why it isn't "And what are those groups?"

February 18, 2013

The verb in the sentence is "font", a conjugation of "faire", meaning "to do" or "to make". If the question was asking what the groups "are", the verb used would be "etre" not "faire".

Why not -- and what makes these groups?

That would mean something different, you would then assume the groups to be an object, not a subject of the sentence. Generally in English it is pretty important to have the subject before the verb.
