If I have a few pieces of paper in my hand, handing the paper to my superior, how should I ask whether he needs the paper to be stapled or not? Is it correct to say "does the paper need to be stapled" or "does it need to be stapled". If the pieces of paper are from the same file, could I ask "does the file need to be stapled?
Do all these expressions sound natural?
If anyone could be so kind and correct the mistakes I made when I tried to raise the question, it is appreciated.
Would you like me to staple them (the papers) for you?(You can't really staple a file, but you can staple the papers in a file. (The word file refers to the information.))
