Questions With and Without Auxiliaries
Transcript of Questions With and Without Auxiliaries
Who do you like?
Where do you live?
How often do you play soccer?
Who did you go with?
To make information questions in the past and present simple, we use the auxiliary verbs do/does/did + infinitive.
Questions without auxiliaries
When the question word (who, where, when, which, how many) is the subject of the verb in the question, we do not use an auxiliary (do/does/did) and the verb is in the third person.
Questions with auxiliary
Question word: what, how, who, when, where, which, How many, how much, how often, what time, etc.
Auxiliary: Do, Did, Have, Verb to Be.
