Why is there a “de” in “T'as d'autres questions ?”? while we say “T'as une question ?”, “J'ai une voiture.”

In which other cases do we use “de”?

Besides, why is it “de” and not “des”?

    Note that you should write "tu as …" instead of "t'as …" unless we are transcribing a conversation. – wap26 Aug 31 '15 at 9:18
  • In this case, it is even better to write "As-tu d'autres questions?" – radouxju Sep 1 '15 at 7:50

Normally it would be des autres (des is the plural of un/e), but des changes to de in front of an adjective (and de changes to d' in front of a vowel).

Other examples:

J'ai de bons amis - I have some good friends.

Il y a de belles filles ici - There are some beautiful girls here.
