Tag questions exercises

How to make positive and negative tag questions, or question tags.

Read explanation

Tag questions are mini-questions at the end of the sentence. They are made up by a verb and a pronoun. For example, It’s a nice day, isn’t it? The tag question is normally negative in a positive sentence and positive in a negative sentence: She looks great, doesn’t she? She doesn’t look tired, does she? These questions are often used in spoken English. Depending on the intonation, we can invite another person to agree with us, ask to confirm or clarify something, or make a polite request. The exercises on this page will help you practise making tag questions.
