Reviewing Questions
1.
 
We can use questions:-
 
To ask for information: What time does the train leave?-
 
To ask for permission: May I go out?-
 
To make a request: Could you please help me with this?-
 
To offer to do something: Shall I carry your suitcase?-
 
For invitations: Would you like something to drink?-
 
For suggestions: Shall we go to the cinema?-
 
To express interest: How are you?2.
 
There are two types of questions:-
 
Yes/No questions, where we start the question with an auxiliary or a modal, andthe answer is always yes or no:
o
 
Do you live in Palma? – Yes, I do
o
 
Did he go to the gym yesterday night? – No, he didn’t
o
 
Can you type? – Yes, I can
o
 
Will you help me with my homework? – No, I won’tAuxiliary/Modal + subject + verb + complements ?-
 
Open questions or wh- questions, where we start with a wh- word and theanswer is open:
o
 
Where do you live? – In Palma
o
 
What did you do yesterday? – I went trekking
o
 
Where shall we go? – We can go to the cinema
o
 
When will it happen? – Who knows. Soon, I hope
o
 
How long have you been abroad? – For five years nowWh- word + auxiliary + subject + verb + complements ?3.
 
Subject and object questions: When the interrogative pronoun works as an objectin the question, we obviously have an auxiliary and a subject as usual, but if theinterrogative pronoun or wh-word works as the subject of the question, we don’thave an auxiliary.Object questions Subject questionsWho did you see at the party? Who else came to the party?What did you say to Peter? What happened there?4.
 
Questions ending with a preposition: We usually place prepositions at the end of a question, though in very formal and quite old English it’s also possible to place
