TO BE: INTERROGRATIVE SENTENCES, TO BE: NEGATIVE SENTENCES

We use the verb TO BE to talk about a lot of different things. For example – about the job, person or some other thing.

 

 

TO BE – THE PRESENT SIMPLE TENSE (affirmative to be – short forms)

 

TO BE – THE PRESENT SIMPLE TENSE (interrogative)

 

We create the interrogative form by inversion where the personal pronoun and the verb “to be” change places.

She is happy.                 →   Is she happy?

They are in the office.  →   Are they in the office?

 

 

Predicate/Subject

 

We form the negative form by adding NOT after the verb to be.

I am not John!

It is not Cat!

We are not at home.

They are not in the office
