Questions play a vital role in communication as they enable us to seek information, clarify doubts, and engage in conversations. In English, there are various types of questions that we use to gather information or elicit a response. Understanding how to form and use different types of questions is important for effective communication and success in the TOEFL exam.
Understanding and practicing different question forms will help you become more proficient in English and improve your performance in the TOEFL exam. Remember to pay attention to the word order, the use of question words, and the intonation when asking questions.
By mastering the skill of asking questions, you will be able to engage in meaningful conversations, gather information effectively, and demonstrate your language proficiency in various contexts.
