Unit 48. Questions (1)
(Вопросы 1)

We usually make questions by changing the word order: we put the first auxiliary verb (AV) before the subject (S):

      S                  +           AV                     AV         +        S
Tom
you
I
the house
  will
have
can
was
-> will
have
can
was
  Tom?
you?
I?
the house?

In Present Simple questions, we use do/does:

you
the film
  live
begins
-> do
does
  you live?
the film begin?

In Past Simple questions, we use did:

you
the the accident
  sold
happened
-> did   you sell?
the accident happen?

But do not use do/does/did in questions if who/what/which is the subject of the sentence.

Note the word order in negative questions beginning Why…?:
