Who, why, what and when are all words used when asking questions. We ask questions without giving much thought to how we actually construct a question. In English, there are two main ways of forming a question: either by inverting the subject and the main verb or by the use of an auxiliary verb (a helping verb).
Here are two examples:
- 'He is swimming in the lake. - Is he swimming in the lake?' (inversion)
- 'He studies hard. - Does he study hard? (does is the auxiliary/helping verb).
One thing you must always remember when writing a question - the question mark at the end. You shouldn't have too many problems with this 11-plus quiz.
