A-Z Challenge 2015: Y is for Yes/No Questions

What are Yes/No Questions? A Yes/No Question is a question that can be answered with yes or no. They normally begin with an auxiliary verb or a modal verb, but can also begin with main verbs like be and have

  • Auxiliary verbs: do, can, has, and did to name a few.
  • Modal verbs: can, could, will, would, shall, should, and dare to name a few.

There are three basic question types:

  • Yes/No: the answer is “yes or no”
  • Question-word: the answer is “information”
  • Choice: the answer is “in the question”


  • Do you want dinner?
  • When will we have lunch?
  • Do you want milk or sugar with your tea?
  • Will they be interested?
