Question Tags Exercise

Tag questions can be interpreted in two different ways. The real meaning depends upon the intonation.

Study the following sentence.

You will do it, won't you?

This can be said in two ways. If you say it with the voice falling on do it and won't you, it means 'I am sure, you will do it.' But if you say it with the voice rising on won't you?, it becomes a query. It means: 'I think you will do it - but I am not quite sure - please tell me if I am wrong.'

Add tag questions to the following statements.

1. He will come today.

2. You won't disappoint us.

3. The train is arriving on time.

4. It is worth the trouble.

5. James gave you a cheque.

6. He likes fish.

7. Let's have a party.

8. There is something wrong.

9. Nothing can happen.

10. Nobody phoned.
