    In order to form a question that can be answered by either "Yes" or "No" out of these sentences, we invert the pronoun (or noun) and auxiliary verb positions
    .
    We use "do" or "do not" if there is no auxiliary verb in the predicate.

    The statements will translate into the following questions
    :
    • "Will we leave soon?"
    • "Are you working?"
    • "Can I go outside?"
      We will have the statement beginning with a pronoun. On the right, we'll have questions that can be answered by either "Yes" or "No". They begin with auxiliary verbs followed directly by a pronoun (or noun).
