Asking a yes/no question in ASL

A yes-no question is usually accompanied with the raised eyebrows, widened eyes and forward head. Sometimes, holding the last word at the end of sentence also anticipates a response.

Practice the non-manual grammar for yes/no questions: raising eyebrows and tilting head forward.
