Structure: Question Tags.

CONTENT

There are different types of questions. There are ‘WH’’ questions, Yes/No questions, statement questions, question tags, etc

Question tags are actually a kind of Yes/No question. They are usually attached to the end of a statement. However, in all types of questions, the verb in both the question and the answer must be in the same tense. Question tags are mostly used when you want your listener (s) to agree with you on something. There are rules that govern tag questions and answers. These are:

  1. Positive Statement, Negative Tag, Positive Answer.
  2. Negative Statement, Positive Tag, Negative Answer
  3. An auxiliary verb repeats itself in the tag, but main verbs use the appropriate forms of the verb ‘Do’
  4. In a complex sentence, the tag is picked from the main clause.

 

The following are examples:

  1. She is leaving now, isn’t she? Yes, she is.
  2. You will come back for me, won’t you? Yes, I will.
  3. The children can’t do the sums, can they? No, they can’t.
  4. They have some oranges, don’t they? Yes, they do.
  5. Bola can sing very well when she is happy, can’t she? Yes, she can.
