If you generally need some help with Kantian ethics I would recommend watching this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bIys6JoEDw as it explains the concepts in a good way

Welp, I do OCR Philosophy & Ethics and I'm not exactly sure whether you're asking for example questions or what Kant's views on stealing were but, one question that I can think of (and also completely made up) is: "'The best philosophical approach towards theft is Kantian ethics' How far would you agree?" Then compare it to the other approaches (Utilitarianism, Situation Ethics etc.) The question itself might not mention Kantian ethics, but if your teacher mentioned it, you should reference it.

Kant's beliefs on theft are:
(Depends on the situation but) Theft takes away the autonomy of the victim.
Theft uses the victim as a means to the end of whatever is stolen (this goes against the Kingdom of Ends)
Theft is un-universalisable because you wouldn't like people stealing from you. If it was universalised, no one would be trustworthy.

There's more but I'm no expert.
