Change Statements Into Questions | Class 5 English Grammar Worksheets

Change the following statements into questions. This sentence transformation worksheet is for students of classes 4 and 5.

How to change a statement into a question

If the affirmative sentence has an auxiliary verb in it, it is easy to transform it into a question. You only have to put the auxiliary before the subject.

An example is given below.

  • Raju is writing a story. (statement)
  • Is Raju writing a story? (question)

If the affirmative sentence does not have an auxiliary verb, you have to use do, does or did to make questions. Use do and does in the simple present tense and did in the simple past tense.

Use do with plural subject and does with singular subjects. Examples are given below.

  • Aditya works in a bank.

The previous sentence is in the simple present tense and the subject is the singular noun Aditya. Hence, we use the auxiliary does to transform this sentence into a question.

  • Does Aditya work in a bank?
  • His sisters live in Canada.

The previous sentence is in the simple present tense and the subject is the plural noun sisters Hence, we use the auxiliary do to transform this sentence into a question.

  • Do his sisters live in Canada?

Another example is given below.

  • Rani arrived yesterday.

The previous sentence is in the simple past tense and hence we use did.

  • Did Rani arrive yesterday?

Note that after do, does and did, we use the first form of the verb.

  • Does she live here? (NOT Does she lives here.)
  • Did he come yesterday? (NOT Did he came yesterday?)
