Basic questions :-

Consider sentences  :-
Do you go ?
Did he go ?
Will she speak ?
Was he dancing

These are all basic questions in English. In Gujarati basic questions can be formed by adding શું (shuM).
i.e. by saying શું (shuM) before an statement; it will be converted to question. And we say it in a question tone. 

He goes -> Does he go ?
એ જાયે છે  (e jAye Che)  -> શું એ જાયે છે  ? (shuM e jAye Che) 

She went -> did she go ?
તે ગઈ  (te gaI) -> શું તે ગઈ  ? (shuM te gaI)

They will go -> will they go ?
તેઓ જશે   (teo jashe ) -> શું તેઓ જશે  ? (shuM teo jashe )


Such questions can also be asked buy using same sentence but just changing tone. In English as well we do it some times.
e.g You are coming -> You coming ??

તું આવીશ  (tuM AvIsh)  -> તું આવીશ ? (tuM AvIsh)

You told him secret --> You told him secret ?
તેં એને રહસ્ય કહ્યું  (teM ene rahasy kahyuM)  -> તેં એને રહસ્ય કહ્યું ? (teM ene rahasy kahyuM)
