    did you /did you use to

    Hello everyone,

    Are these two sentences both correct? Is there any difference between them?
    1. What sports did you play when you were a child?
    2. What sports did you use to play when you were a child?

    Thank you.

    Re: did you /did you use to

    They mean the same thing. In my opinion, there is no need for "use to" if you are going to specify "when you are a child". It is clear from "when you are a child" that you are talking about the past.

    What sports did you play when you were a child?
    What sports did you use to play?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
