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?
She's got a cat, hasn't she?
The question tag has been emboldened in blue.
He did not win the prize, did he?
Again, the question tag has been emboldened in blue.
