All words beginning with 'Q' in the English language have 'U' as the second letter.

qwer·ty or QWER·TY


noun
having standard typewriter keyboard layout: used to describe a typewriter or computer keyboard with the standard arrangement of keys for the alphabet, with the top row of alphabetic characters beginning with the letters q,w, e, r, t, and y.

there are plenty of words that begin with Q and don't have U as a second letter. Qi and qat for instance.
