English Class – Asking Questions

Questions in different tenses:


Simple present What does he read?
Present progressive What is he reading?
Simple past What did he read?
Past progressive What was he reading?
Past perfect What has he read?

Questions are formed in two ways:


• If the original tense has a helping verb (i.e. a form of be or have), then the
question is formed as follows:
question word + helping verb conjugated to match the subject + subject +
form of the verb
used for the tense
• If the original tense does not have a helping verb, then the question is formed as
follows:
question word + do conjugated to match the subject + subject + root form of
the verb

Exercise
Directions: Form a question that uses the question word in parentheses.
