Here we are again with our next topic. Today we will look at how to ask questions in Urdu. There are two type of questions: Yes/No Questions and Questions with so-called Questions words. Some people also call those “Open questions”. Today we will have a look at Yes/No Questions. Our next blog entry will then look at the “Open Questions”.
In Urdu, making Yes/No questions is really easy.
- Make a normal sentence.
- Then add the little word کیا“kya” in front of the sentence and a question mark at the end.
- Voila. Here you have your Yes/No question
Just one more note: Kya also is used as a question word and has the meaning “what”. However, in Yes/No Questions the word “kya” simply indicates that this is a yes/no question. It is not translated. *
