Asking about times
(At) what time...?
The word 'at' is often omitted from the question in normal speech.
I get up at seven o'clock. / I get up at seven.
I arrive home at five forty-five. / I arrive home at a quarter to six.
Questions using the verb to be
'Do' and 'does' are not used when forming questions with the
verb 'to be - is, are, was, were'. Questions are formed by
changing the position of the verb and subject.
