Making Questions.

"Sad Young Man on Train" by Marcel Duchamp


















Part One: "Yes/No" Questions
Change the following sentences into Yes/No Questions. Yes/No questions are formed by placing the auxiliary (helping verb) before the subject of the sentence. In Simple Present, use "Do" or "Does", and in Simple Past, use "Did".

1. Fred drives carefully.



2. Mr. Harper walked downtown with his friend.



3. Maria is listening to the radio now.



4. There were a lot of people at the party last night.



5. Martha does her homework every evening.



6. The store is having a big sale today.



7. Mrs. Franklin told her friend the good news.



8. They will have enough time to work this afternoon.



9. You hear the traffic on Mission Street.



10. Julia has been a student in this school for a long time.



11. Animals can predict earthquakes.



Part Two: Information questions. Place the question word first, then the auxiliary, then the subject. Ask a question based on the answer in bold type. You will begin your question with what, when, where, why, who, whose, how, how long, or how far.


1. John borrowed a dictionary because he didn't understand the word.



2. They'll arrive at the airport at 10 o'clock.



3. They usually park their car in the Bartlett Garage.



4. I've been waiting here for 45 minutes.



5. Mr. Parker sold his house because he had to move to New York.



6. She's planning to spend her vacation in Florida.



7. We're going to get married next June.



8. The students usually come to school by bus.



9. My country is about one thousand miles from California.



10. The accident happened at the corner of 15th Street and Howard.



11. That notebook is Jose's.



12. I'm writing a letter to my friends in Oregon.
