    What do you understand by it. When you use the auxiliary, "do/does", the verb is in the bare infinitive "What does it mean?"

    Hi Bhaisahab, is it a mistake to write "What does it means" ? I want to ask ...
    "What is the meaning for the word" something like this

    'What does it means?' is wrong.

    'What does it mean?' is right.

    See if you can deduce the meaning of 2006 rolled on for yourself by using a dictionary such as this one.

    Hi Rover, thanks for fixing me now I see how I should write it :)

    I didn't find "Roll on" on the page, and if I try to understant it word by word "Roll+on" I either understand it
