There are different ways of asking question in Hindi, and the same ways are followed in Marathi as well.

1) Question by changing voice tone
"तू आयेगा" is a statement. But if said in different tone "तू आयेगा ? " will become question.
Same way in Marathi "तू येशील"  is statement. But is said in interrogating tone, "तू येशील ? " becomes question.
So simple !!

2) Adding  का (kA)to convert statement into question
"तू आयेगा"  is statement. "तू आयेगा क्या ?" is question.
Similarly in Marathi  का (kA) is added to make a question.
"तू येशील"  is statement. "तू येशील का ?" is question.

3) Adding ना to convert statement into question

"तू आयेगा"  is statement. "तू आयेगा ना?" is question.
It is exactly same in Marathi  ना is added to make a question.
"तू येशील"  is statement. "तू येशील ना?" is question.
