Hello everyone. I just wanted to ask a little question.

I don't ask you do you want!
I don't ask you want!
I don't ask you do you want or not!

I am confused. which one is true? Could you help me?

    Welcome to the forum, Chaussure! :)

    I think you're asking which of the three is correct.

    None of them sound quite natural in English, but it's difficult to say without any context. Can you explain what you're trying to express? In what situation would you say it, and to whom? If it's a reply to something, what did the other person say to you?

    There was a dialog.

    -do that job.
    +I dont want to
    -I dont ask you do you want or not. In other words, I dont give you a chance to do that or not.
    I wish I could explanied sufficiently.

    I would not say I don't ask you, but instead I'm not asking you whether/if you want to or not.

    You could also use the past simple: I didn't ask you whether you wanted to or not.

    And welcome to the English forum, Chaussure! :)
