Who's = who is, Whose = possessive of who.

"Who does this computer belong to ?" Is not accepted. Why not? 25/12/2019

I believe "belong to" is ”属于“ in Chinese, so the sentence would be slightly different.

Ex: "Who does this computer belong to?" would be "这台电脑属于谁?“ -> “This computer belongs to whom?”

I was expecting there to be a classifier after 这. Is that only if it's directly modifying a noun phrase?
