Explanations of what?

It is a legitimate question to explain: “how do we explain the legitimacy of counterfactuals?”
Is it a legitimate question to ask: “where does necessity come from?”

It is a legitimate question to ask a of something within the discourse of physics “how is it that such and such a thing, has such and such a modification/action, when entered into such and such a change of condition”; we could appeal to causality, dispositions, properties…
Is it a legitimate question to ask “what caused causation?”, or “what is the property of property?”, “what necessitates necessity?” (tangentially, I think asking ‘how are possibles possible’ is a valid question outright)
