Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Peter likes to play tennis

    • A.

      Does He like to play tennis ?

    • B.

      Does He likes to play tennis ?

    Correct Answer
    A. Does He like to play tennis ?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Does He like to play tennis?" because when forming a question in English, the auxiliary verb "do" is used to indicate the question form, and the main verb "like" remains in its base form without the "s" ending. Therefore, the correct question form is "Does he like to play tennis?"

    Mary speaks French

    • A.

    • C.

      Option 3

    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    B. Does She speak French ?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Does She speak French?" This is because the question is asking about Mary's ability to speak French, so the correct form of the verb "to speak" is "does she speak." The other options are incorrect because they either use the wrong verb form or do not use the correct subject-verb agreement.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The monkey climbs the tree.

    • A.

      Do it climbs the three ?

    • B.

      Does it climb the three ?

    Correct Answer
    B. Does it climb the three ?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Does it climb the three?" because the word "does" is used to form a question in the present tense. Additionally, "climb" is the correct verb form for the subject "it," and "the three" is likely a typo, as it should be "the tree" to match the subject of the sentence.

  • 4. 

    They travel to Europe every year

    • A.

      Do they travel to Europe every year ?

    • B.

      Does they travel to Europe every year ?

    Correct Answer
    A. Do they travel to Europe every year ?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Do they travel to Europe every year?" because it follows the correct subject-verb agreement. The subject "they" is plural, so the corresponding verb form "do" should be used instead of "does" which is used with singular subjects.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Mr. Robinson teaches math

    • A.

      Does he teach math?

    • B.

      Does he teaches math ?

    Correct Answer
    A. Does he teach math?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Does he teach math?" because the subject "Mr. Robinson" is singular and the verb "teach" should be in the base form without the -s ending. The question is formed using the auxiliary verb "does" followed by the subject "he" and the base form of the verb "teach."

    • A.

      Does Sally go to the beach every weekend?

    • B.

      Does Sally goes to the beach every weekend.

    Correct Answer
    A. Does Sally go to the beach every weekend?
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Does Sally go to the beach every weekend?" The question is asking about Sally's routine of going to the beach every weekend. The correct form of the auxiliary verb "goes" is "go" in this interrogative sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    She brushes her teeth every day

    • A.

      Do she brushes her teeth every day?

    • B.

      Does she brush her teeth every day?

    Correct Answer
    B. Does she brush her teeth every day?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Does she brush her teeth every day?" because the subject "she" requires the third person singular form of the verb "brush," which is "brushes." The auxiliary verb "does" is used to form questions and negations in the present simple tense for third person singular subjects. Therefore, the correct question form is "Does she brush her teeth every day?"

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    I like pizza

    • A.

      Do you like pizza?

    • B.

      Do I like pizza?

    Correct Answer
    A. Do you like pizza?
    Explanation
    The answer "Do you like pizza?" is correct because it is a question that is grammatically correct and makes sense in the given context. The previous statements "I like pizza" and "Do I like pizza?" are not questions, but statements. Therefore, the only appropriate question to ask based on the given statements is "Do you like pizza?" which is asking for the preference of the person being addressed.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    She sings in the band every Saturday

    • A.

      Does she sing in the band every Saturday?

    • B.

      Does she sings in the band every Saturday?

    Correct Answer
    A. Does she sing in the band every Saturday?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Does she sing in the band every Saturday?" This is because the auxiliary verb "does" is used to form a question in the present simple tense. In this case, the base form of the verb "sing" is used after "does" to create the question. The incorrect answer "Does she sings in the band every Saturday?" is incorrect because the verb "sings" is not used correctly with the auxiliary verb "does".

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    They cook the dinner

    • A.

      Does we cook the dinner?

    • B.

      Do we cook the dinner?

    Correct Answer
    B. Do we cook the dinner?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Do we cook the dinner?" because the question is asking about the subject "we" and whether they cook the dinner. In English, when forming a question with a subject pronoun like "we," we use the auxiliary verb "do" before the subject. Therefore, the correct question structure is "Do we cook the dinner?"

    She does

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given answer "True" suggests that the subject mentioned in the question, "She," does something. However, since the question is incomplete and lacks any specific context or action, it is difficult to provide a precise explanation. It is possible that "She" refers to a specific person who is known to perform certain actions, or it could be a general statement indicating that "She" is capable of doing something. Without further information, it is challenging to determine the exact meaning.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes it does
    Explanation

The word "does" is used to indicate the present tense and agreement with the subject "stomach." The other options "Yes, it do" and "Option 4" are grammatically incorrect and do not match the subject-verb agreement.
