Question tags


Tags


 

Questions tags are short questions that come at the end of sentences that reflect the main clause.

                                     For example: 

It's very cold tonight,isn't it?

Yes, it is, but it's much better than last night.

Le question tag dépend de la phrase qui  précède.

                                


A-a positive main clause has a negative question tag


 

It has been a wonderful trip,hasn't it?

B-a negative main clause has a positive question tag


 

Well, I don't want to stay here,do I?

C-

Same tense for the two clauses. For example, for the present simple, use 'does' or 'do'. ('doesn't' /'don't').



 


Wendy needs your help,doesn't she?

D-Another example: preterie = use Did. ('Didn't').
or WAS / WERE (if it is BE)


 

She worked as a secretary for three years,didn't she?

BUT: She was a secretary, wasn't she ?



Choose the correct 'tag'.
