Hi Shraddha,

Quel âge as-tu ?   is correct.

Quel âge tu-as ?   I do not think is correct because the word order should be as above.

I believe that one could say "Tu as quel âge ?" however, (by using a raised intonation at the end of the request.)

How to decide ?   Unfortunately by study, study, study.

Bonne continuation (it's worth it)

Bonjour Shraddha,

Thank you for your answer, Jim! 

Correct : quel âge as-tu ? - Tu as quel âge ? 

To supplement on " quel âge tu as ? " : it is a very colloquial way of speaking ; mostly heard when talking to someone.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
