   Please remember we have 9 wh- words that we use to make any questions.

1. How -  we use it to know about  the process of any work or amount/number of anything : Such as :
  (a) How old are you ?   Here we have used how to know about the number of age.

2.   When --  we use when in any question to know about the time of any action. such as :

5. Whose --  We use it to know the owner of anything.  Such as :

Now make a wh- question based on under line words.


1.  Saikat  lives with  his parents.

2.  He is  a fire-fighter.

3.  He went to school.

4. The man missed the train for his delay.

5.  He will come tomorrow.

Ans :   1. Whom does Saikat live with ?  or,  With whom does Saikat live ?
            2. Who is he ?
           3. Where did he go ?
           4. Why did the man miss the train ?
           5. When will he come ?


Discussion about the answers. 

    For    answer 1. In present Indefinite Tense we have to use do/does after the wh-word. Mind it if the subject is 3rd person and singular number then we have to use does and for others do. When we use do/does then the principal verb must in present form.

For ans  2.  We have used Who to know about the man that is fire-fighter. Here in that sentence we need not do/does because here auxiliary verb  ' is ' is present.

For ans 3. Here We have used Where to know the place of his going. In that sentence is of Past Indefinite  Tense. so we have to use did just after Wh- word. and then principal verb must be in present form.

For ans 4. Here we have used Why to know the reason of his missing the train. We have also used did after the wh-word because it is the sentence of Past Indefinite.

For ans 5. Here we have used when to make question because we want to know the time of his coming. Here do/does/did is not necessary because here auxiliary verb  " will '  is present.


Students Now practice again.
