Who can help me with the usage of "Whose"?

Who can help me with the usage of "Whose"?
I wonder if this question is correct or not?
Whose this is it? is it obligatory to use a noun after "This"?
as an example "Whose book is it"?

Thanks in advance

    Whose addresses an object. This object can be stated, or -sometimes- unstated:
    Whose is this?
    Whose book is this?
    Whose turn is it?
    A man whose shoes are black.

    note that the object can be a thing or an action, so long as whose is addressing it. If left out, an unspoken object is being inferred.
