    Does it open? or is it open?

    I have to make questions asking for information and using information in picture to answer

    My teacher said that : "does it open everyday?" and does it open in weekend?"
    "IT" mean a "shop".


    but I think that : "is it open everyday?" or is it open in weekend?



    Now, can u show me who wrong? and why?

    Thanks for your help

    In this context, "Is it open every?" or "Is it open on/at the weekend?" make sense hence correct.

    "Does it open every day?" and "Does it open at weekends?" also make perfect sense.

    Re: Does it open? or is it open?

    Note, stephen, 'everyday' is an adjective (what you use to say more about a noun: 'These are my everyday clothes....); 'every day' is an adverbial (what you use to say more about a verb: 'I wear them every day').
