I don't know when it is necessary to use the auxiliary verb or not , I saw some sentences without the auxiliary , are they correct? Which one is correct and why :
"Which team won ? or "which team did win?"
"How many people work here ?" or "How many people do work here ?"
"How many people you see " or " How many people do you see ?
Laura you don't use auxiliaries when who/what/which is the 'subject' of the sentence.
When you say for example:
Jennifer called somebody....(somebody is the object)
Who DID Jennifer call??
Somebody called Jennifer...(somebody is the subject)
Who called Jennifer?? (no auxiliary here)
