Типы вопросительных предложений









Общими вопросами называют такие, на которые можно ответить да или нет. Они начинаются с глагола, стоящего в вопросительной форме

Do you know him?  Вы знаете его?

Is this bag clean?  Эта сумка чистая?




Специальные вопросы имеют целью выяснение какого-либо факта или обстоятельства. Они относятся не ко всему предложению, а к одному из его членов. Начинаются они с вопросительного слова. Глагол стоит в вопросительной форме только в том случае, если вопросительное слово не является подлежащим или определением подлежащего

Where is he?  Где он?

Where do you studyГде ты учишься?

Who knows this?

Кто это знает?

What do you know? Что вы знаете?




Альтернативные вопросы предполагают в ответе выбор между двумя или более предметами, действиями или качествами, выраженными однородными членами предложения, соединенными союзом or или

Do you study at the Universityor at college? Вы учитесь в университете или в колледже?




Разделительные вопросы состоят как бы из двух частей: первая часть представляет собой повествовательное предложение (утвердительное или отрицательное), а вторая  краткий общий вопрос, состоящий из вспомогательного (или модального) глагола в требуемой форме и личного местоимения в именительном падеже. При этом если первая часть вопроса утвердительная, то вспомогательный (модальный) глагол употребляется в отрицательной форме, если же первая часть отрицательная, то вспомогательный (модальный) глагол употребляется в утвердительной форме

You bought the tickets, didntyou? Вы купили билеты, не так ли?

You had a good time in the country last week, didnt you?

Вы хорошо провели время за городом на прошлой неделе, не правда ли?

He hasnt come back from Moscow yet, has he? Он ведь еще не вернулся из Москвы?






Отрицательная форма специальных вопросов образуется при помощи отрицательной частицы not, которая в разговорной речи часто сливается с вспомогательным глаголом, стоящим перед подлежащим

Why didnyou know your lesson?

Почему вы не готовы к уроку?

Why isnhe coming to see us? Почему он не придет к нам?


Отрицательная форма общего вопроса в английском языке придает ему некоторый оттенок удивления. Такие предложения переводятся на русский язык как вопросы, начинающиеся со слов разве, неужели

Didnyou know about the meeting? Неужели вы не знали о собрании?

Didnyou go to the library yesterday? Разве вы не были в библиотеке вчера?

Модальные глаголы – CAN, MUST, MAY, NEED И ГЛАГОЛ TO BE –

Вспомогательный глагол НЕ нужен, просто выносим сам модальный глагол в начало фразы, меняя его местами с подлежащим:

She can drive a car. – Она умеет водить машину.

Can she drive a car? - Она умеет водить машину?(Yes, she can.; No, she cannot )

We must tell him. – Мы должны ему сказать.

Must we tell him? - Мы должны ему сказать?(Yes, we must.;  No, we must  not )

You may come in. – Ты можешь войти.

May I come in? – Можно мне войти?

must put down the words. – Мне нужно записать эти слова.

Must I put down the words? - Мне нужно записать эти слова?

You need leave now. - Вам нужно уходить сейчас.

Need I live now?

Exercise 12. Read the text about earthquakes. Then complete the questions for each answer.


When an earthquake occurs, part of the Earth's surface moves. In fact, the surface of the Earth moves all the time. The tectonic plates which make up the surface press against each other very slowly. Over thousands of years, this movement creates great stress. In some places where the layers of rock are weak, this eventually causes a sudden movement – an earthquake. Thousands of earthquakes happen every day, but most are very small and cause no damage. A large Earthquake shakes buildings to the ground, or causes a tsunami wave. The effects are usually very serious. Severe earthquakes are common in southern Europe, and on I November 1755 a powerful earthquake hit the city of Lisbon in Portugal. Between 60,000 and 100,000 people

died. After the earthquake a tsunami struck the city, and there was also a fire, which caused nearly total destruction. People as far away as Finland felt the shock, and the tsunami

reached Barbados in the West Indies. Geologists now believe that the strength of the earthquake was as high as 9 on the Richter scale. This is the same strength as the Indian Ocean earthquake of 26 December 2004.
