    Re: meant

    What do you mean exactly?
    Now and meant can't go together and Do auxiliary is necessary in this question
    What do I mean to do now ?
    or in the past
    What did I mean to do then ?

    Re: meant

    You could say 'What am I meant to do now', meaning 'What am I supposed to do now/What should I do now?'
