Asking Question

  1. Welcome to the presentation on
  2. Asking Question
  3. Why do we ask question?
  4. We ask questions for confirmation and information 1.Yes/No questions 2.Wh questions • For Confirmation we use yes/no question , for example: Do you like music? • For information we use Wh questions, for examples: What do you like ? There are two types of questions
  5. Formation of question sentence • the basic thing to know about making question is , the auxiliary verb of the question sentence comes before the subject. • Yes/No question : Auxiliary verb+ Subject+ verb + object? • Wh question : Wh words+ auxiliary verb+ subject+ verb?
  6. Process of Making Questions • We have to know two grammar items before going into the process of making questions. Auxiliary verbs and Wh words with their functions. • Auxiliary verbs: • There are four types of auxiliary verbs: 1. To be: am, is ,are, was, were, be, being, been 2. To have: have, has, had 3. To do: do did, does 4. Modals ( we also call it others auxiliary verbs): can, could, may, might, shall, should, will, would, must etc.
  7. Ways to use auxiliary verbs in question sentence. • Above mentioned verbs are helping verbs which are visible with the main verbs but only ‘to do’ verbs are invisible auxiliary that are hidden within the action verbs. • For example: • Drink is an action verb which consists (drink+ do), if I say, ‘drinks’ (it will be ‘(drink+ does), If I say drank, it will be (drink+ did) • And secondly, we have to know the wh words and their functions
  8. Wh words and their functions • We use What for specific thing or object • Where is used for location or place • When is used for date and time. • Why for knowing about reason • Who to know about people or person. • Which is used for giving any options or choices. • How is used to know about any reason of the action. • How old, how many and how much also can be used to ask about age, number and quantity respectively.
  9. Let’s make some wh questions from sentences. • She lives in a flat. • I want to ask her about her place of living . • So the question will be: Where does she live? • So in this sentence we can see ‘lives’ has been broken into ‘live + does’
  10. • He is doing his homework. • The question will be • What is he doing? • In this sentence we don’t need any ‘to do’ auxiliary verbs because there is a ‘to be’ verb already in this sentence. • Like this if we say • They have completed their work recently. • When have they completed their work?
  11. And yes/ no question , it is very simple • We just have to put the auxiliary before the subject. • For example • He is a student. • Is he a student? • He has done the work. • Has he done the work?
