Homework

Do + subject + verb


She know 'love' song => Does she know 'love' song?
He plays the guitar => Does he plays the guitar?


Be + subject + adjective OR noun



Nul is a cute girl => Is Nul a cute girl?
You are a boy => Are you a boy


Wh + do + subject + verb


She meets (where) Nul => Where she meets Nul?
Nul leave (why) => Why Nul leave?


Wh + is + subject


My CD-player is (where) => Where is my CD-player?
Lunch time is (When) => When is Lunch time?


To make past tense questions, just change the verb tense:


Did you doze English class?


Tenses other than present simple and past simple usually have an auxiliary verb which can be moved to form a question:


You are talking -> Are you talking?
She has play the guitar -> Has she plays the guitar?
They will walk -> Will they walk?

[quote="Shin nu ri"]Do + subject + verb


She know 'love' song => Does she know 'love' song?
He plays the guitar => Does he plays the guitar?

This should be changed to this...

She KNOWS 'love' song => Does she know 'love' song?
He plays the guitar => Does he PLAY the guitar?

* * * * * * * * * *

Wh + do + subject + verb

She meets (where) Nul => Where she meets Nul?
Nul leave (why) => Why Nul leave?

Where DOES she MEET Nul?
Nul LEAVES. Why DID Nul leave?

* * * * * * * * * *

To make past tense questions, just change the verb tense:

Did you doze English class?

Did you doze IN English class? (or "Did you doze DURING English class?")

* * * * * * * * * *

Tenses other than present simple and past simple usually have an auxiliary verb which can be moved to form a question:

She has play the guitar -> Has she plays the guitar?

The first sentence should read...

1) She has PLAYED the guitar.
2) She PLAYED the guitar.

The second should be...

Has she PLAYED guitar?
