So why wouldn't "Hva gjor du selger" work here?

gjoer/gjør*

Norwegian doesn't have the 'do'-construction, so to ask questions you put the verb at the front, right after the question word. 'do' would translate to 'gjør' in other sentences, however. "Do it!" = "Gjør det!".

For multiple choice tasks, you're asked to pick all the correct answers.

In this case, that would be "What do you sell?" and "What are you selling?".
