Yes – No Question

Ada banyak macam pertanyaan dalam bahasa Inggris dan yang paling mudah adalah pertanyaan yang dijawab dengan “yes” atau “no.” saja.

A: Are you from around here?
B: Yes, I am. A: Do you come here often?
B: Yes, I do. A: Can I buy you a drink?
B: No, thanks. A: Are you married?
B: Yes, I am.

Cara untuk membentuk sebuah pertanyaan dari sebuah kalimat pernyataan, hitunglah jumlah kata kerjanya dulu.

John is a doctor.

1: is (be)

Jane drives a sports car.

1: drives

Joan played basketball last night.

1: played

Jan is eating her dinner.

2: is eating

June has rented an apartment.

2: has rented

Jen has been living there since 1969.

3: has been living


Jika kata kerjanya Cuma 1 (satu) pindahkan saja posisi kata kerjanya menjadi di depan.

Statement

Question

John is a doctor.

Is John a doctor?

She can swim well.

Can she swim well?

Jika kata kerjanya ada 2 (dua), Pindahkah saja kata kerja yang pertama menjadi di depan.

Question

Jan is eating dinner.

Is Jan eating dinner?

June has rented an apartment.

Has June rented an apartment?

Jen has been living here since 1969.

Jika ada 1 kata kerja, namun kata kerjanya bukan to be, maka tempatkan DO, DOES, DID di awal kalimat dengan memperhatikan bentuk dan tenses dari kata kerjanya:

Contoh:

  • They live in that house = Do they live in that house?
  • Jane drives a car. = Does Jane drive a car?
  • Joan played basketball last night. = Did Joan play basketball?

Perhatikan perbedaan penggunaan have dalam American dan British English?

Question

You have a pet ferret.

Have you a pet ferret? (British)

 

Do you have a pet ferret? (American)
