I'm Japanese living in Spain. I'm learning Spanish.
The translations you requested are;

"Un año tiene 365 días" (A year has 365 days)/ 1年は365日です。

"una hora tiene 60 minutos" (one hour has 60 minutes)/1時間は60分です。

Hva spiser du?
I'm learning Norwegian, and have a basic understanding of statements vs questions.

Du spiser egg. = You are eating eggs.
Spiser du egg? = Are you eating eggs?

Then there is the question "Hva spiser du?" which translates as "What are you eating?" (Jeg spiser egg, selvfølgelig! XP)

I would like to know how one would ask "What is eating you?"

Sorry that this example is so absurd...I'm just interested in the principle of how to ask what is being done to me rather than what I am doing.
What are you eating? vs What is eating you?
Who are you painting? vs Who is painting you?
What are you chasing? vs What is chasing you?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Questions about English grammar
In 1., do you mean with a past participle, or do you mean with nothing following it?

For 2., that proposed phrase has correct syntax, but it isn’t colloquial; a native English speaker would rarely (if ever) say it. It would be used with the past tense, though: “She has just eaten” or “She just ate” rather than “She just has eaten”.

If the “~” in 3. represents a past participle, then there is no difference in meaning, although the first one might also (but doesn’t necessarily) express surprise at the completion of the action, and the second one might also (but doesn’t necessarily) express annoyance at the person being asked, e.g. “Have you already finished?” vs. “Have you finished yet?”. (“Already” could also follow the past participle, and might be more common that way.)

In 4., the first can imply “recently”, while the second means “in the history of the universe”, e.g. “I haven’t slept” vs. “I’ve never slept”.
