Hi!
In my textbook there is a phrase:
1) "Do you surely like living in a big city?"
It's interpreted as "Are you sure you like living in a big city?"

Could you please tell me if phrase 1) is good English? Is its iterpretation correct?

    "Do you surely like living in a big city?" would be a very odd thing for a native speaker to say, and it definitely would not mean "Are you sure...?"
