if i am in front of a scene what kind of questions do i have to ask to light the scene?
First of all, what the mood : night, day, inside, outside ?
After, if your in studio, where the light is coming from already ? Window ? Pratical ?
The best thing to do when you're on the way to lit a scene is to look how the location is lite naturaly and try to emulate that, don't fight against ;-)

If the overall approach is naturalistic, then you basically follow the natural sources that you either capture, augment, or recreate wholesale, and then tweak for what the actors are doing (or adjust them for where the light is coming from so they don't shadow each other, etc.)
