QUESTIONS

Remember:
When you use TO BE, dont use auxiliary.

With the exception of the verb to be, verbs in


English use the auxiliary to form questions and
negative statements
CLOSED QUESTIONS or YES-NO QUESTIONS:

The answer is YES or NO just 2 options to answer the question


The questions ALWAYS START with TO BE or DO/DOES
1) Yes/No questions -with to be
NOTE:
We always use the short answer, not only "Yes" or "No". This
sounds rude.
If the answer is "Yes", we always use the long form. Example:
Yes, I am.
If the answer is "No", we either use the long or the contrated
form (short form). Example: No, I am not - No, I'm not.
