    You may not realise that English Language & Usage (EL&U) is a question and answer site for linguists, etymologists, and serious English language enthusiasts. There’s also English Language Learners where you might find some useful information and similar questions.. For further information about what's expected in a question on our EL&U site, see How to Ask. – Chappo Hasn't Forgotten Monica Sep 23 '18 at 5:17
  • Each other is spelled with a space in the middle of the two words. – green_ideas Sep 23 '18 at 5:36
  • @Chappo I dont know if youre the one who voted to migrate to ELL but it's my understanding they dont want questions that show zero research any more than ELU does.... See, eg, this meta answer from an ELL mod. (Although, in practice, ELL does not close many questions that show little or no research.) – green_ideas Sep 23 '18 at 5:41
  • @Knotell I flagged the post as showing insufficient research, but I'm aware that ELL takes the same approach, so no, I didn't flag for migration. – Chappo Hasn't Forgotten Monica Sep 23 '18 at 5:51

Here is your sentence:

they continued seeing each other.

You want to form a yes-no question. Here is the structure:

an auxiliary verb + subject + main verb

The main verb of your sentence is "continue". Since there is no auxiliary verb (like be, have, can or a modal verb) in your sentence, you should use does or do or did.

The tense of this sentence is simple past, so we choose did to form a yes-no question.

Did they continue seeing each other?
