Questions with and without auxiliaries

When we make questions in the past and present simple, we normally use an auxiliary verb:
'What time did you post the letter?'


When the question word (who?, which?, how many'?) is the subject of the verb in the question, we do not use an auxiliary verb and the verb is in the third person.
'Who wrote 'Hamlet'?'

Present simple or continuos?

We use the present simple for things you do every day, week, year, or which are always true. We often use the present simple with adverbs of frequency (usually, often, always...) and expressions of frequency (every day, once a week...)
'It doesn´t often rain here'

We use the present continuous for this happening now, at this moment. Some verbs are not normally used in the present continuous :like, want, need, have (possess)...
'She can´t answer the phone now. She´s studying in her room.
