Question tags

A question tag is a question which we add to the end of a statement because we would like to get an answer to our statement.

The tag contains a subject pronoun (it, he, she, etc.) which matches the subject of the statement, and a verb which matches the verb in the statement.
If the statement is positive, we use a negative tag. If the statement is negative, we use a positive tag.
