Forming yes/no Questions

Look at the following examples:

A: Are you from around here?

B: Yes, I am.

A: Do you come here often?

B: Yes, I do.

A: Can I buy you a drink?

B: No, thanks.

A: Are you married?

B: Yes, I am.

When we want to ask yes/no questions we can use

  • do/does,
  • am/is/are


  • have/has

as question words.

We use

  • do or have or am with personal pronouns ,

we use

  • does or has or is with third person singular pronouns (he, she, it) and with singular noun forms.

We use

  • do or have or are with other personal pronouns (you, we they) and with plural noun forms.

Yes/no questions with the verb be are created

  • by moving the verb be to the beginning of the sentence. In other words the subject and the verb change their positions in statements and questions.
