    Re: affirmative sentece

    Except for modal and auxiliary verbs and "to be", and in British English sometimes "to have", all English verbs form the negative simple present and past by do/did not + base form (infinitive).

    I run -- I do not run
    I ran -- I did not run
    he runs -- he does not run
    he ran -- he did not run

    So this is an ordinary negative, with the affirmative "it needs".

    PS How can I make...
