Google Converts Queries Into Questions

I noticed an interesting Google Search experiment in the mobile/tablet interface. When searching for [alcohol with the highest boiling], Google converted my query into a question: “Which alcohol has the highest boiling point?”, then it tried to answer the question using a snippet from a web page and then it added a “more results” link. Google’s link sent to me to the search results page for the question inferred by Google.
