Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    __________ you like hockey?

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Do" because the question is asking about the subject's preference for hockey. In English, when asking about likes or preferences, we use the auxiliary verb "do" before the subject.

    __________ she have a cat?

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Does" because the question is asking about the third-person singular subject "she" and the verb "have" needs to be conjugated accordingly. In English, when forming a question in the present simple tense for third-person singular subjects, we use "does" as an auxiliary verb before the subject. Therefore, "Does she have a cat?" is the correct way to ask if she possesses a cat.

    __________ they want a drink?

    Explanation
    The given question is asking whether someone wants a drink. In this case, "Do" is the correct answer because it is the appropriate auxiliary verb to use when forming a question in English. The auxiliary verb "do" is used to form questions in the present simple tense for all subjects except third-person singular (he, she, it), where "does" is used instead. Therefore, "Do" is the correct answer to the question "__________ they want a drink?"

    __________ your mother work?

    Explanation
    The answer "Does" is correct because it is the correct form of the verb "do" to match with the subject "your mother" in the question. In English, when asking a question about a third-person singular subject (he, she, it), we use "does" instead of "do". Therefore, "Does your mother work?" is the correct question form.

  • 5. 

    __________ Billy have a bike?

  • 6. 

    __________ your teachers give you homework?

    Explanation
    The question is asking about the action of teachers giving homework. The correct answer is "Do" because it is the correct form of the verb to match with the subject "teachers." In English, the verb "do" is used when referring to actions performed by third-person plural subjects, such as "teachers." Therefore, the correct sentence would be "Do your teachers give you homework?"

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    __________ those children live in the city?

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Do" because the question is asking about the action of living in the city, which requires the auxiliary verb "do" to form a question in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    __________ we need our books?

  • 9. 

    __________ that radio station play good music?

    Explanation
    The question is asking about a specific subject, which is the radio station. The word "Does" is the correct answer because it is the correct form of the verb "do" to use with the singular subject "radio station" in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    __________ Tom like his new car?

    Explanation
    The given question is asking whether Tom likes his new car. To form a question in the present simple tense, we need to use the auxiliary verb "do" or "does" with the base form of the main verb. In this case, since the subject is "Tom" which is a singular third person, we use "does" as the auxiliary verb. Therefore, the correct answer is "Does".
