Asking Questions

This KS2 English quiz will test you on asking questions. The use of punctuation when asking questions in writing is very important.

¿Habla inglés? Spanish has a very interesting way of punctuating questions. In Spanish, an upside down question mark comes at the beginning of the question so that the reader will know to expect a question rather than a statement. English is not so helpful. In English, word order is nearly always used to show that you are reading or hearing a question. 'You are' becomes 'Are you?'

  1. Change this statement into a question.
    You are excited about the school trip.
    Punctuation is important when writing English.
  2. Change this statement into a question.
    I can smell something delicious cooking for tea.
    The last answer makes sense but forgets to mention smell.
  3. Change this statement into a question.
    He has wanted to be a doctor since he was a child.
    'He has' simply becomes 'has he'.
  4. Change this statement into a question.
    Let's take the train to London.
    'Let's' = 'let us' - the only way to turn this into a question is to use 'shall we'.
  5. Change this statement into a question.
    I like chocolate.
    'Do I like chocolate?' is an example of a rhetorical question. You wouldn't really expect someone else to answer that for you!
  6. Change this statement into a question.
    The radiators are not working.
    Often the word order has to change quite a bit when you turn a statement into a question.
  7. Change this statement into a question.
    You are eleven years old today.
    The last answer is not correct, but would work very well when writing dialogue.
  8. Change this statement into a question.
    We will be visiting the museum later today.
    In some instances, you might hear this as a question: 'We will be visiting the museum later today?' - using this word order would only be as a repetition of the original statement in order to express surprise.
  9. Change this statement into a question.
    My favourite toy has disappeared.
    Don't forget to add the question mark.
  10. Change this statement into a question.
