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