Questions starting with question words do.

For the ones without, the verb/subject word order still gets switched around, so that the verb ends up in the first position:

"Han spiser." -> "Spiser han?"

I wrote "Vi er ikke kvinner." But the solution says it's "Vi er ikke damer."? Why is mine wrong? Is there a difference between "kvinner" and "damer"?

They're both correct, with "kvinner" being our default translation.
