The question is asked this way because your non-dominant hand is used to index siblings and children in order of age. The phrase is signed here as: "BROTHER SISTER, YOU POINT(non-dominant index)?" with "BROTHER SISTER" signed with the topical facial expression and with "YOU POINT(non-dominant index)?" signed with the wh-word question facial expression (eyebrows down).
