This study aimed to examine the most frequently used types of questions by teachers in BS English classrooms. For data collection, the audio recording of 8 classes of BS English program of Air University, Islamabad was the subject of this study. Audios were later on transcribed and utilized for analysis. For analysis, the function of teacher questions by Long and Sato (1983) was used. The results of the study showed that teachers used display questions more persistently than referential questions, which helped to facilitate more of the classroom discourse.
