#EngClass: Simple Present Tense (negative and interrogative)

Hi, fellas! Masih ingat tentang Simple Present Tense? Kali ini kita bahas tentang kalimat negative dan interrogative Simple Present Tense yah.

Just a quick recap: Positive Present Tense is S + V1 (+ s/es) + O/adverb. Contoh:

  • She reads novels every day.
  • He teaches English.

Untuk membentuk kalimat negative dan interrogative Simple Present Tense, kita menggunakan kata kerja bantu (auxiliary verb) ‘do’ atau ‘does’.

‘Do’ digunakan untuk subjects: I, you, we, they, subject jamak lainnya.

‘Does’ digunakan untuk subjects: He, she, it, dan subject tunggal lainnya.

Dalam kalimat negative dan interrogative, kat kerja (verb) yang berakhiran ditambahkan akhiran s/es harus kembali ke bentuk dasar.

Cara menyusun kalimat negative:

S + do/does + not + Verb 1.

  • Contoh: The film does not start at 1.45 pm. They do not treat her well.

Cara menyusun kalimat interrogative:

Do/Does + S + Verb 1 … ?

  • Contoh Does the film start at 1.45? Do they treat her well?
