    Re: does/do in question

    Hello Kahhong

    That's not quite right, unfortunately! "Do" and "Does" in a question always go with a bare infinitive, e.g.

    1. Does he like fish?
    2. Do you expect rain?

    So you can't join "does" to "is increased".

    Would you like to try your sentence again? Then I'll check it for you.

    MrP
