    Simple present tense form

    Hi everyone,

    I really need help with this question. I don't even know how to phrase the question properly.

    So I'll explain... Look at these two options, which is correct and please provide the grammatical reference...

    a) What does Father do? Brings home the money.

    b) What does Father do? Bring home the money.

    I personally think (b) is correct....I know if I were to write a full answer to the question, it would be: He brings home the money.
    But without the subject, which is more accurate?

    Please help.

    Thanks in advance.

    a) is correct.

    You have provided the grammatical reference yourself. The subject is omitted in this truncated answer.
