"What monument is that?" would also be correct.

Why is "What is that monument?" wrong?

Either way is correct.

Why not mitä??

That's the partitive form of "mikä".

If the question was "Mitä monumenttia tuo on?" (note the "a" at the end of "monumenttia"), you'd be asking "What monument is that a part of?".

"What is that monument?" was deemed incorrect.

That would be "Mikä tuo monumentti on?".

In UK English there is a subtle difference. I got it wrong too and should have remembered that word order in Finnish and English are often identical.

What monument is it ? I only guess , I wrote it as - What monument is that , but was wondering if are other ways.
