mismas que hemos empleado en el presente
progresivo). The verb WAS is used with the
pronouns I, He, She, It. The verb WERE is used
with the pronouns They, You, We.

WH - QUESTIONS
Las preguntas de informacin por lo
general se hacen con palabras que
comiencen con WH- , as tenemos: where,
when, why, who, what, how. Esta vez
ya no podemos responder con YES o
con NO porque las preguntas son de
informacin.

EXAMPLES OF WH - QUESTIONS
What was
Beatriz doing
yesterday?

She was
writing an
essay.

EXAMPLES OF WH - QUESTIONS
Where were
you studying
last year?

I was studying
in this
university.

WH - QUESTIONS
Como pudiste observar, la estructura
despus de la palabra con WH- es la
misma que hemos empleado en las
oraciones interrogativas de Yes No. La
diferencia est en que las respuestas
deben darse en oraciones completas o
con sentido coherente.

REMEMBER:
Si te hacen una pregunta con cualquier auxiliar o con el verbo
To Be, la respuesta puede ser corta con YES o con NO. El
auxiliar o verbo To Be debe ir acorde a la afirmacin o
negacin. Si te preguntan con WAS tu respuesta debe ser con
WAS.
