    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'.
