Long explanation:

The Vietnamese phrase 'những ai' uses the plural marker 'những' followed by the question word 'ai' to inquire about which people or who (in a plural sense). It can be translated to English as 'who all' or 'who are'. This phrase is used when the speaker wishes to inquire about a group of people instead of an individual.
