Present Simple: the use of Auxiliaries in Negative Questions_Practice Exercise


Negative questions
To form a negative question, the Simple Present of the auxiliary do is placed before the subject, and the word not followed by the bare infinitive is placed after the subject. However, when contractions are used, the contracted form of not follows immediately after the Simple Present of the auxiliary do. For example:


Without contractions                                      With contractions
  Do I not work?  Don't I work?
  Do you not work?  Don't you work?
  Does he not work?  Doesn't he work?
  Does she not work?  Doesn't she work?
  Does it not work?  Doesn't it work?
  Do we not work?  Don't we work?
  Do they not work?  Don't they work?


Change the affirmative statements into negative questions. 
Give both the forms without contractions, and the forms with contractions. 
For example: 
 She walks to work. Does she not walk to work? Doesn't she walk to work? 
They take the bus. Do they not take the bus? Don't they take the bus?
Answers:
1. Do I not hurry home? Don't I hurry home? 
2. Does he not drive a truck? Doesn't he drive a truck? 
3. Do you not follow the news? Don't you follows the news? 
4. Do they not want a pet? Don't they want a pet? 
5. Does she not like flowers? Doesn't she like flowers? 
6. Do we not need tea? Don't we need tea? 
7. Does she not answer the questions? Doesn't she answer the questions?
8. Does he not drink coffee? Doesn't he drink coffee? 
9. Do I not learn quickly? Don't I learn quickly? 
10. Does it not rain heavily? Doesn't it rain heavily?
