Usually after a question word in French, the subject goes before the verb if it's a pronoun, BUT after the verb if it's a noun, so we'd say:
À quelle heure IL va arriver? but À quelle heure va arriver OLIVER? (different order)
In some contexts like here, both orders are ok when the subject is a noun -À quelle heure Oliver va arriver? (but watch out not always).
Another way of forming this type of questions is with "est-ce que". With "est-ce que" the order is always the same: the subject goes before the verb, no matter if it's a pronoun or a noun, for example we'd say:
À quelle heure est-ce qu'IL va arriver? and: À quelle heure est-ce qu'OLIVER va arriver? (same order in this case)
So even though you'll probably hear both structures, feel free to learn and use only ONE of the structures to build questions at first, and once you master it, you can start learning the other one. Since both are equally correct and common, the program always accepts both anyway :)
