Get an explanation when it's available:
  • A positive statement is followed by a negative question tag. Tom is a boy, isn't he?
  • A negative statement is followed by a positive question tag. She isn't a very nice person, is she?
  • When the verb in the main sentence is in the present simple tense, we form the question tag with do / does. You drink wine, don't you?
  • When the statement contains a word with a negative meaning, the question tag needs to be positive. She never talks, does she? They rarely go to the movies, do they?
