These three tasks help the beginners to learn how to form an interrogative sentence in the Present Simple. You can also find them among my printables. Hope you find them useful. Have a nice week.



Interrogative sentences


    - Write the correct form of the verbs in the brackets on the lines. Then write an interrogative sentence. Look at the example below.

 E.g.: They go to school. Do they go to school?

 She visits her grandma. Does she visit her grandma?


1)      John the car. (clean)

2)      Viola her hair. (brush)


3)      Mandy the lunch. (cook)


4)      He . (cry)


5)      Patty and Billy at the disco. (dance)


6)      Dale next to the lake. (fish)


7)      Tim up at 7. (get)


8)      They  lunch at 1. (have)


9)      Ms Dew the clothes. (iron)


10)      You comics. (read)



    – Rewrite the sentences into interrogative ones. Look at the examples of task 1.

1)      April never dresses in her room.

2)      They often play basketball.


3)      Mum washes up in the evenings.


4)      We enter the room.


5)      Tiny seldom fetches the ball.


6)      The disco finishes at 2 a.m.


7)      Mother and father usually help me.


8)      I clean my teeth twice a day.


9)      The children always do their homework.


10)      Ben misses the bus every morning.




    - Change the following sentences into interrogative then give short answers according to the sign. Look at the examples. Be careful with ‘to be’ and ‘have got’. (yes: Thumbs Up ; no: Thumbs Down)

They dance a lot. Thumbs Up Do they dance a lot? Yes, they do.

She swims fast. Thumbs Down Does she swim fast? No, she doesn’t.


1)      I am a doctor. Thumbs Up

2)      We have dinner at 6 o’clock. Thumbs Down
3)      Father often buys some food. Thumbs Up
4)      Mrs Canter always gives us a test. Thumbs Down
5)      Sam wants an ice-cream. Thumbs Down
6)      Henry sleeps in his bed. Thumbs Up
7)      Tom and Mary catch a cold easily. Thumbs Up
8)      Paul learns English. Thumbs Down
9)      It costs $20. Thumbs Up
10)      Tina makes the bed. Thumbs Down
