How to make present simple questions
We usually use do or does to make questions in the present simple tense. The verb does is used in the third person singular (he, she, it).
Do I need the new shoes?
Do you know what I mean?
Does he drive to work?
Does she eat junk food?
Does it suit me?
Do we go by 10.30 bus?
We combine do/does with not to make negative questions. The full forms and short forms, however, have different word orders.
Do I not need the new shoes? - Don't I need the new shoes?
Do you not know what I mean? - Don't you not know what I mean?
Does he not drive to work? - Doesn't he drive to work?
Does she not eat junk food? - Doesn't she eat junk food?
Does it not suit me? - Doesn't it suit me?
Do we not go by 10.30 bus? - Don't we go by 10.30 bus?
We normally use short forms to make questions in spoken English, but we can use full forms if we want to put stress on not to make it sound stronger.
