Why is this asked as: "C'est un oignon?" and not "Est-ce un oignon?"

Earlier, there was a question that asked: "Est-ce un poulet?" could that also be asked as "C'est un poulet?"

How can I tell that this means "That is an onion?" as opposed to "This is an onion?"?

when saying "c'est un..." are your supposed pronounce the "t"? if so, why?

Yes, because the next word starts with a vowel.

This is one of those rare cases in which the French language is actually trying to make your life easier. Try saying 'c'est un' (quickly, as you would in conversation). If you pronounce the 't', the two words flow together quite smoothly. If you don't, the transition between vowels ends up sounding a bit awkward and chokey.

"It's a bulb?" should also be accepted, but is not. In other words, questions in both French and English can be created by the declarative word order.
