Quite a few - I would estimate about 25 percent are in the wrong categories. The system automatically suggests categories according to the wording of the question. many people just submit the question without reviewing the suggested categories. It's then left to other users to edit the categories so the question shows up in the best place for an answer.

There are so many questions because people have lots of questions and they come to WikiAnswers seeking answers!
