I have to make questions with the following words are they correct? What could be the answer to the second question?

school days_ like or dislike?

present occupation

do you like or dislike school days?

What is your present occupation?

  • What is the problem with the second question? Is it that you do not know the meaning of "occupation"? – Mick Nov 22 '17 at 2:04

Both questions are grammatically correct.

An answer to the second question could be “My current occupation is teaching” or “My present occupation is that of a teacher”. If you find that that sounds too formal and stilted, you can simply reply with “I teach for a living” or “I’m a teacher”.

Note that it is grammatically wrong to say “My current occupation is a teacher” since ‘teacher’ refers to a person, not a job or occupation.
