Practice writing questions and answers in the present tense

Present tense questions with the verb “do” are made two ways:

1. Yes-No Questions:

Q: Do you want some water?

A: No, I don’t.

In this first example, “do” is the helping verb, and “want” is the main verb. Use “do” or “does,” depending on the subject.

Q: Does he want to see that movie?

A: Yes, he does.

The verb “do” is often an answer to a yes-no question.

Here’s a video:

2. Questions for information:

Q: Where does he live?

A: He lives in Minnesota.

Incorrect: He does live in Minnesota.

Q: What do you do for a living? (What is your job?)

A: I’m a cook.

In this example, “do” + “do” make a question.

The answer does not require the verb “do.”

I am a cook. — uses the verb “be.”
