Worksheet Overview

In this activity, you will learn what question tags are and how to use them appropriately.

 

Question tags are the short questions that we put at the end of a sentence.

Question tags are often used in spoken English.

 

A question tag can often encourage a short answer, maybe just 'yes or 'no'.

We can think of a question tag as a 'reply' question.

 

The basic structure of the question tag is:

The given sentence + comma (,) + Auxiliary verb + Pronoun + ?

He did not win the race. (Statement)

He did not win the race, did he?

 

Example 1:

She's got a cat, hasn't she?

The question tag has been emboldened in blue.

 

Example 2:

He did not win the prize, did he?

Again, the question tag has been emboldened in blue.
