Do You Know the Question Types in English?


There are two types of questions in English;

1) Yes/No Questions

2) Information Questions

1) Yes/No questions 👍 👎 

These are closed questions. They don’t begin with a question word and generally, require a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer. With yes / no questions, we change the order of the subject and verb from a positive to a question form (auxiliary verb + subject).

For Example;

  • Did you study business or finance at college?
  • Is your job interesting?
  • Do you like studying English? 

2) Information questions ❓❓

When we need to have more information, we ask open questions, often beginning with a question word such as where, what, when, how, why. The word order is generally the same as for yes / no questions.

For Example;

  • What aspect of the course interested you most?
  • By how much did the market fall?
  • Where do they work?
  • Who pays your salary?
