Yes I have Questions. Men drinking oil, children with wine and now I've been ordered to remove my pants. You bet I have questions!

We all do, we all do.

In this case, the punctuation indicates that this is an exclamation, more a comment, and not a question. Like, "Wow, you have odd questions!".

Or it could be a mad professor, looking at you with burning eyes and seeing the (either existing or not) questions on your face and going.

YOU HAVE QUESTIONS!

I dont get it, when to use "do" in the sentence... I mean can "Du hast Fragen!" be "do you have questions"?

They are trying to teach you about inflection. Listen to it again. If it was a question then the pitch would rise at the end on the sentence.

No, "du" means "you" and there is no question mark at the end of the sentence.

The question word always comes first in questions. "Do you have questions?" would be "Hast du Fragen?"

In the previous multiple choice question, the only correct answer for Frage was "issue", when I thought its sole meaning was "question". Now I put "issues" instead of "questions" (which in this sense makes more sense given the punctuation) and it says that's wrong. Can anybody clarify whether or not Frage is actually used to mean issue?
