TAG QUESTIONS IN ENGLISH

Tag Questions in Envlish with Meaning and Example


Hello, friends.
Whatever we learn about grammar, we should know that we are going to be rich in a language. As a well-wisher of you, I am always with you.To-day, I have taken the topic- Tag Questions in English which contains tag question rules as well as tag question exercise. In this topic, you will find tag question definition or tag question meaning and  examples for question tag.

Let's get started-

First of all, we have to know-
What is a Tag Question?

A Tag Question is a grammatical structure in which a Declarative Sentence or an Imperative Sentence is turned into an Interrogative or Question pattern or segment.

The rules which are simple-

1.  Generally, after the first clause or part, there is a comma.

2.  After the second clause or part, there is a question mark.

3.  If one clause is in positive sense or Affirmative pattern, the other is in negative sense or Negative Pattern.

Very Important-

1. The second part or clause is  ended up with the Subject, viz nothing is written after the Subject.
Example-1.He loves me, doesn't he?

2. If the second part or clause is written in Negative Pattern or sense, contraction ( short form ) is written. But , how?
It is-
is not- isn't
are not- aren't
will not- won't
shall not- shan't
would not-wouldn't
should not- shouldn't
do not- don't
does not- doesn't
did not- didn't
can not- can't
must not- mustn't
have not- haven't
has not- hasn't

The exceptional thing-
I am honest, aren't I?

Remember-

Before learning Tag, you have to learn how to make Interrogative Sentence.
Because,the same pattern is used, only nothing is written after the Subject in the second clause.

Examples-

1. He likes me, doesn't he?
2. We play football, don't we?
3. They are reading now, aren't they?
4. Dilip did the work yesterday, didn't he?
5. Reena could do it, couldn't she?
6. Raju, Ram and Jane can do it, can't they?
7. We shall go to Shillong, shan't we?
8. We helped her, didn't we?
9. They will do very soon, won't they?
10. It is good, isn't it?
11. They caught him, didn't they?
12. Rakesh said this, didn't he?
13. Protap knows me, doesn't he?

15. He doesn't know my father, does he?
16. I cannot swim, can I?
17. He did not help you, did he?
18. The man is not standing, is he?
19. We do not know them, do we?
20. He could not get it, could he?
21. He may not come here, may he?
22. I shall go, shan't  I?
23. I shall not do, shall I?
24. Bidyut does not play cricket, does he?
25. They will not come, will they?
26. She is not responsible, is she?
27. I have done the work, haven't I?

32. The boy was dancing, wasn't he?
33. He said it , didn't he?
34. He does not love you, does he?
