A format of question with ” For what”

is this format of question correct and what is the alternative style?
For what this instrument is used?
Thanks in advance.


If you say “For what this instrument is used” I would understand you, but I would think that English is not your native language. More common would be: “What is this instrument used for?” or even “For what is this instrument used?”

When forming a question, we invert the subject and verb: “this instruent is” -> “is this instrument”
