What does it mean, this one comes first

What does this mean, kindly illustrate it with an example.

When the subject of your interrogative sentence is a noun, this one comes first and it's then repeated by the matching pronoun

Look at this example:

Les filles se dépêchent-elles? -- Are the girls hurrying? 

Sentences where you are asking for a noun (les filles), it comes before the reflexive pronoun (se) and, at the close of the sentence, there's a matching personal pronoun (elles).
