    It should be: "what sport do you like playing?"
    The form in your book is incorrect.

    "What is the sport that you like playing?" is possible, and this could be shortened to "What's the sport you like playing?" - but this could only really be said in reply to a statement such as "I like playing sport."

    Should be without 's
    or perhaps the sentence is : What´S the sport do you like playing?

    The 's is short for 'is,' so the sentence is asking "What is the sport..." However, in this case, the sentence should read, "What's the sport you like playing?" (The subject is 'sport,' the verb is 'is,' and 'you like playing' describes 'sport.') :D
