You already know that you can ask questions in Present Simple with “do” and “does.”
An article with exercises is here: https://englishwithasmile.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=586&action=edit

However, questions with “who” are different.
If you ask a question with who, you don’t use “do” or “does.” (only if “who” is the subject).
Here are some examples that show you this:
1 Who sits next to him?
As you can see, no “does” here.
If you say or write: “Who does sit next to him,” it’s a mistake.
2 Who reads the New York Times?
If you say or write: “Who does read the New York Times,” it’s wrong.
Note: questions with “who” are usually in the singular (about one person), unless you know you’re talking about more than one person.
Example: We’re talking about the fact that older people read books.
So you can ask: Who read a lot of books? (Answer: older people.)
Ask questions about the following sentences.
Ellen lives next to Joe.
Who lives next to Joe?
1 The teacher stands in front of the class. – Who … ?
2 The driver drives a bus. – Who … ?
3 The students ride their bikes to college. – Who … ?
4 The gardener works in the garden. – Who … ?
5 My friends writes notes on her tablet. – Who … ?
6 Ken uses a dictionary. – Who … ?
7 My boyfriend loves me. – Who … ?
