If it's the "-t-" that's throwing you off, it's strictly to avoid the clash of two vowels, making things sound better and easier to pronounce. So, "Comment va-t-elle?" would be asking "How is she?" using a combination of inversion (switching the order of subject and verb) and the phonetic "-t-" in between.
