Hello there, should i add "s" on want?
What the question wants?
I would say that the question usually does not want anything...
I agree with Bernadetta.
You cannot use "question" with "want"
Anyway, you can say: What is the question? or What`s the question ? or What`s your question ...."
What does he want? You cannot use "wants" here because this is an interrogative sentence , but
He wants to go there [affirmative sentence]
It might be possible to use 'want' with 'question:
'Have you seen the essay question? Did you understand it?'
'I think that the question wants us to...'
(Mind you, this is stretching the point a bit- normally it wouldn't work)
Thank you for clarifying that. I prefer not to use this construction; anyway, it is good [to me] to know about it.
OK thank a Lot!!
but question wants , the "s" indicates 3rd person place or plural?
A Billion thanks
Yes, you can add "s" to the verb "want" when it is in the 3rd person singular. present simple tense, affirmative:
e.g. He wants to go there.
She wants to tell you something.
"I think that the question wants us to..." [ as TDOL has already specified in his answer]
All the best,
