- For Teachers
Could you help me with these questions? They are questions for listening, so the students have to fill in the answers.
a) According to this statement, 'He ran into a tree and nearly broke his arm'.
Is the following question correct? What did he do and what happened?
b) According to this statement, 'Careful!' he thought. 'Careful.' He put his hand out in
front of him and ran more slowly.
Is the following question correct? 'What did he think and did after that?
Thanks in advance
Thank you for your reply. So, the verb 'did' affects all the verbs in a question and all the verbs that follow 'did' have to be in infinitive without 'to'.
The same thing happens to the verbs 'do/does', as auxiliary verbs, doesn't it?
Is it a correct explanation?
What did he do and say later?
What do you like and dislike about the film?
How much did you earn and spend last year?
With your example about the film, we would be unlikely to put that in the present form using "Does".
Is he [both] the director and financier of the movie?
Is he [both] directing and financing the movie?
It would be fine in the past "Did he direct and finance the movie?"
Thank you so much for your help and corrections. Of course I had to write 'apply'. You know why I made this mistake, because my original sentence was, 'the same rule applies for them? Then I thought, 'It's not enought to put a question mark, I should use the auxiliary verb 'does' too'. I wrote it, but then I didn't change the principal verb! In my haste to rush I forgot to change it.
We usually use "apply/applies to".
I'm sure you realise this, but I should point out for the benefit of others that I was talking about "apply to" in this context.
Does this rule apply to my sentence?
The rule applies to everyone.
I want to apply for the job.
This set of criteria applies to the job.
