To be Interrogative

Download Download eBook Download ebook


To be is one of the most commonly used auxiliary verbs. To be is often used with nouns, adjectives and prepositional phrases.

In its interrogative form, it asks for the characteristics of the subject and is placed before it (the sentence ends with a question mark).

The forms are: Am I…?, Are you…?, Is he…?, Is she…?, Is it…?, Are we…?, Are you…? and Are they…?.

For example:
— “Am I tall?” = We use Am for the first person singular.
— “Is he tall?” = We use Is for the third person singular.
— “Are they tall?” = We use Are for plurals.

NOTE: Short forms don’t exist for the interrogative form (Is he tall? / ‘s he tall?).

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