This is a data analysis tool. The user poses a question, and then adds data analysis snippets that helps answer that question.

On the left of the page, there is the list of questions and a field for entering additional questions. On the right is the list of components that are linked to the selected question.

Is there a way to show that they are viewing a list of questions, and that they must select one from the list in order to proceed?

The solution here would be to go for progressive disclosure where you first show the list of questions and then tell the user that he needs to select a question. once a question is selected, then you can show the related content.

Here is a quick wireframe to illustrate the flow
