Will you or won't you?
Message from may posted on 12-12-2009 at 13:39:37 (D | E | F)
I really need your help to complete this sentence accurately:
when the show is over, you will put down the posters, WON'T YOU?
when the show is over, you will put down the posters, WILL YOU?
Thank you very much!

One hour's detention!

This isn't what you asked about, but I thought that I should point this out:
One puts a poster up (attaches it to the wall, where people can read it.)
However, one takes a poster down (removes it from the wall and throws it away).
If you say that somebody put a poster down, it means that they were holding the poster in their hands, and then they laid it down on a flat surface. In the same way, one could put a cup down, put a pencil down, put a book down, etc.
I hope this helps you think about your assignment,
Best - krnntp

Definitely you are right, Seb06000 and Lucile83, but it's not me who should be put on detention. This sentence is from a test on the advanced level:
Down/Again (Phrasal verbs)
Complete the sentences choosing the right verb
(look on question number 2), you will see.......

A test question? Really? The grammar is so iffy.
I'm forced to imagine a "show" where somebody holds a sheaf of posters - perhaps they wave the posters around, and dance? - and somebody else who is afraid that after the show, this performer doesn't plan to relinquish the posters.
Best regards - krnntp

You can also "put down" a person by insulting him.
And you can "put down" a cat or dog by euthanizing it.
- Do you support euthanasia ?
- Of course! I support youth everywhere, including in Asia!

Sorry for being out of the subject: the hour's detention is not for you May, it is for me It is a child-like game between Lucile and I when I do any spelling mistake
Traviskidd: We should avoid your puns drinking a coffee when we're still dozing
Sorry let's come back to the subject matter

it was not really a spelling mistake seb, it was a missing verb.
I found the test and I changed the verb in question 2.
