    Re: Do and Does

    Welcome to the forum.

    I think you have misunderstood the point of this forum. We are not here to replace your own research and your own dedicated study of the English language. What specifically do you not understand about the verb "to do"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Hello, Berley:

    I believe that I am allowed to give you this very brief introduction.

    "Do" ("does" and "did") are used for many reasons. Some reasons are:

    1. To make a statement: "James always does his homework."

    2. To make a question: "Did James do his homework yesterday?"

    3. To make the negative: "I do not speak French."

    If you want to speak English correctly, it is essential (absolutely necessary) that you learn how to use this little word.

    Re: Do and Does

    The simplest answer to your question is that "does" is the third person singular simple present tense of the verb "[to] do", and "do" is the present simple of the other five forms.
