Tu and vous

So how are we going to know  if the question  is a formal or an informal one

I think what you're asking is: how do we know whether the question is addressed (formally) at a single person or at a group. There is no formal/informal distinction when talking to a group, you always use vous.

The distinction between formal 2nd person singular and 2nd person plural is only possible through context.
