Questions and Answers
  • 1.

      A. aren't you

    • B.

      B. isn't you

    • C.

      C. shouldn't you

    Correct Answer
    A. A. aren't you
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a. aren't you." This is because the phrase "aren't you" is a tag question that is commonly used to seek confirmation or agreement. In this context, it is asking if the person being addressed is also coming to the party. The other options, "b. isn't you" and "c. shouldn't you," do not make grammatical sense in this sentence.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. was it
    Explanation
    The given statement is a negative sentence, "It wasn't very difficult." In English, negative sentences are typically followed by positive tag questions to confirm or seek agreement. The correct tag question in this case would be "wasn't it," which is the opposite of the negative statement. Therefore, the correct answer is c. was it.

      C. is he

    Correct Answer
    B. B. isn't he

      C. will it

    Correct Answer
    C. C. will it
    Explanation
    The given question is a negative statement followed by a question tag. The question tag is used to confirm or seek agreement from the listener. In this case, the speaker is expressing doubt that the item will be expensive and is seeking confirmation from the listener. The correct question tag to use in this context is "will it", making option c. "will it" the correct answer.

      B. isn't it

    • C.

      C. wasn't it

    Correct Answer
    A. A. isn't there
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "isn't there" because it is a question tag used to confirm or seek agreement. In this case, the question tag is formed by using the auxiliary verb "isn't" with the subject "there." It is commonly used to confirm the existence or presence of something, which fits the context of the question asking about the milk in the refrigerator.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    We don't need to go to the store, ___?

    • A.

      A. don't we

    • B.

      B. do I

    • C.

      C. do we

    Correct Answer
    C. C. do we
    Explanation
    The given question is a negative statement, indicating that the speaker does not need to go to the store. In English, when a negative statement is made, the question tag that follows should be positive. Therefore, the correct question tag is "do we." This is because "do" is the auxiliary verb used to form question tags in present simple tense, and "we" is the correct pronoun to use in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Susan can bring some food,___?

    • A.

      A. won't she

    • B.

      B. will she

    • C.

      C. can't she

    Correct Answer
    C. C. can't she
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "c. can't she" because the question is asking if Susan is able to bring some food. The negative form of "can" is "can't," so the correct question tag would be "can't she."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The party starts at eight o'clock, ____?

    • A.

      A. isn't it

    • B.

      B. doesn't it

    • C.

      C. does it

    Correct Answer
    B. B. doesn't it
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "b. doesn't it." This is because the question is asking for a negative confirmation or agreement. The phrase "doesn't it" is a contraction of "does not it," which is used to seek agreement or confirmation in a negative sentence. Therefore, the correct response to the statement "The party starts at eight o'clock" would be "doesn't it."

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      C. was it

    Correct Answer
    B. B. wasn't it
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "wasn't it." This is because the sentence is in the past tense and is asking for confirmation or agreement. In this context, "wasn't it" is the appropriate response as it is a negative question tag that matches the negative form of the verb "was."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    There is a lot of noises outside, ___? 

    • A.

      A. aren't there

    • C.

      C. is there

    Correct Answer
    B. B. isn't there
    Explanation
