Yes/No Questions are very useful in our daily life. They are called Yes No Questions because their answer is always in a yes or a no.

In English, these questions always start with a helping verb like Is, am, are, was, were, will, has, have, would, can, could, must, etc.

In Hindi, they start with क्या. However, we do not use what for the English of this word क्या.

For Example:

क्या आप बीमार है?
In English, this sentence will not take what as the English of क्या. Because that word is looking for Yes or No answer rather than any noun or pronoun which are common answers of what.

So, the translation would be as follows:

Are you sick? instead of what you sick?

The formula of Yes/No questions is as follows:

Time Word + Doer + Action Phrase?

With the help of this formula, you can create as many yes/no questions as you like.

For Example:

  • Is your mind working well?
  • Is your father home?
  • Am I your friend?
  • Are your parents home this weekend?
  • Was your music system not working that day?
  • Were your friends misbehaving with my girlfriend at the party?

Some more Examples of Yes/No Questions:

  • Has your mother given you the fee?
  • Have your teachers not taught you manners?
  • Had they talked to you about the project?
  • Will you be my friend?
  • Will you have completed this by tomorrow evening?

Even More Examples of Yes/No Questions:

  • Can you please lend me 2000 Rupees?
  • Would you like to go with me on a date?
  • Would you like to have a coffee and pay for yourself?
  • Should I go?

This kind of questions actually make the listener respond to your questions and stay awake while you are talking to them or giving a speech
