Yes, I sometimes take the subway.

Yes, I seldom take the subway.

2. Do you always take the subway?

Yes, I sometimes take the subway.

3. Do you ever take the subway?

Yes, but I seldom take the subway.

Should the answers be yes / no in the above questions? The frequency adverbs are confusing.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Philip, I wonder if the questioner is asking more about the appropriateness of the answers?

Here's how I might answer.

1. Do you usually take the subway?

Yes, I sometimes take the subway. No, but I sometimes take it.

Yes, I seldom take the subway. No, I seldom take it.

2. Do you always take the subway?

Yes, I sometimes take the subway. No, but I sometimes take it.

3. Do you ever take the subway?

Yes, but I seldom take the subway. Yes, but seldom.

Should the answers be yes / no in the above questions? The frequency adverbs are confusing.

Best wishes, Clive
