Present Simple Interrogative

Download Download eBook Download ebook


We use the present simple, in its interrogative form, to ask about situations that regularly, repeatedly or always occur.

When we use the present simple in its interrogative form, we start with do followed by the subject and the verb in its base form (the sentence ends with a question mark). In the third person singular, we use does.

For example:
— “Do you work on important projects?” = The sentence is in the present simple interrogative, so we start with do and we use the base form of the verb to work (work).
— “Does she work on important projects?” = The subject is she, so we start with does and we use the base form of the verb to work (work).

NOTE: The verb to be is irregular, so it doesn’t follow the general formation rule for the interrogative form. We put it at the beginning of the sentence to form questions.

Let’s revise this content within the {Form} section. Take a look at the {Example} section that shows its use within a context.
