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