Hey IC,

He makes a good point, though perhaps a bit unclear. Interrogative verbs can sometimes form a little definitely.

In his example, you would say "He does (do) the mambo." But the question is "What does he do?" Think of it this way: The "does" part is understood, and so acts as the main verb, turning the other verb into a helping verb (generally formed with the infinitive without the "to").

What does ok stand for? It (does) stand for something.

Hope that helps!
