      Tag questions são short questions colocadas no final de sentences. São usadas para ask for confirmation.

      Quando a first part da sentence is positive e com verb to be, a tag question is negative e com verb to be :

positive statement: (It’s) beautiful
negative tag – verb ‘TO BE’: isn’t it?

Quando a first part da sentence is negative e com verb to be, a tag question is positive e com verb to be:

 

negative statement – verb ‘TO BE’: You’re not happy
positive tag – verb ‘TO BE’: are you?


      But quando a first part da sentence is
not com verb to be, a tag question is com verb to do:

positive statement – verb ‘LOOK’: Looks pretty good
negative tag – verb ‘TO DO’: Doesn’t it?
