QUESTION TAG What is a question tag ?


A tag question is a statement followed by a small-question. We use tag questions to ask for confirmation. In a tag question a statement is made and a question is asked after that. For an example- a) You are busy, Aren't you? b) Rankers is the best institute for preparing for government jobs, isn't it?
Four basic rules have to be kept in mind while making question tags-
1 The sentence and the question tag will be in the same tense. 2 If the sentence is an affirmative sentence, the question tag will be negative. If the sentence is a negative sentence the question tag will be positive. 3 The pronoun is always used in the question tag. 4 In negative question tags we use the contracted form of the ' helping verb and not' Eg- Hasn't , couldn't etc.
