A question is a certain sort of statement that, at first glance, seems to demand for an answer.

The major categories of English Questions are as follow:

  • Yes/No Questions
  • Special or Wh-Questions
  • Choice Questions.
  • Tag questions or disjunctive questions.

Yes/No Questions

These are questions that can be answered with a simple "yes" or "no." They typically start with an auxiliary verb (such as "is," "are," "do," "did," "will," "can," "could," etc.) followed by the subject and main verb. For example:

Are you coming to the party?

Did you finish your homework?

Can you swim?

Special or Wh-Questions:

These are questions that typically start with a question word, also known as a wh-word (such as "what," "who," "where," "when," "why," "which," "whom," "how"). They require a more detailed answer than a simple "yes" or "no." For example:

What is your favorite color?

Where did you go on vacation?

How do you like your coffee?

Choice Questions:

These are questions that offer a choice between two or more options. They typically start with "which" or "would" and are followed by the options. For example:

Which movie do you want to watch, action or comedy?

Would you like tea or coffee?

Do you prefer pizza or burgers?

Tag questions or disjunctive questions:

These are questions that are added to the end of a statement to confirm or check information. They are formed by using a positive or negative statement followed by a tag question that reverses the polarity of the statement. For example:

It's a beautiful day, isn't it?

You don't like chocolate, do you?

She's a good singer, isn't she?
