Why is..?

😦 Excuse me, why the answer to number 10 is ‘A’?

Excuse me, why is this grammatically incorrect? Here are some correct sentences:

Positive 🙂 The answer to number 10 is ‘A’.
Negative 🙂 The answer to number 10 is not ‘A’.
Yes/No question 🙂 Is the answer to number 10 ‘A’?
Why question 🙂 Why is the answer to number 10 ‘A’?
Negative why question 🙂 Why isn’t the answer to number 10 ‘B’?

How about I show you study the correct sentences and then explain the rule in your own words in the comments below?
