"LED, CRT and LCD are all types of what?" Is the grammer right? I've read a sentence in CNN website. "LED, CRT and LCD are all types of what?" Is the grammer right? Usually, the interrogatives are placed at the head of the sentence, aren't they? Are such end-placed-interrogative sentence very common? Could you give me some examples. Thank you very much.

It is correct. English allows a bit of flexibility when it comes to subject placement although not quite as much as in Mandarin. Using interrogatives at the end of a sentence is not common in most questions yet is quite correct. You are welcome! Examples: You are a friend of whom? President Hu said what? Note: LED, CRT and LCD are types of computer monitors. =)
