    Will you or won't you?

    I really need your help to complete this sentence accurately:

    when the show is over, you will put down the posters, WON'T YOU?

    or:

    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.......


    Re: Will you or won't you? from krnntp, posted on 13-12-2009 at 03:57:54 (D | E)
    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.

    Very strange.

    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!

    Good morning

    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

    No worry!

    Traviskidd: We should avoid your puns drinking a coffee when we're still dozing


    Sorry let's come back to the subject matter

    Regards

    sebastien

    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.
    Thanks krnntp
