    Why do some verbs require it?

    Why do some verbs require it?
    Why some verbs require it?

    The verb (do) comes before the subject (verbs) in a question.

    'Auxiliary Verbs are the verbs be, do, have, will when they are followed by another verb (the full verb) in order to form a question, a negative sentence, a compound tense or the passive.'── quoted from https://www.ego4u.com/en/cram-up/gra...uxiliary-verbs
