    • A.

      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 question is asking for confirmation or agreement, and the phrase "aren't you" is a common way to seek confirmation in English. The other options "isn't you" and "shouldn't you" do not fit the context or grammar of the question.

    • C.

      C. was it

    Correct Answer
    C. C. was it
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "c. was it." This is because the question is in the negative form, "It wasn't very difficult," so the correct tag question should be in the positive form. Therefore, "was it" is the appropriate tag question to use in this context.

    Tom is getting something for Sue, ____? 

    • A.

    • C.

      C. is he

    Correct Answer
    B. B. isn't he
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "isn't he". This is because the sentence is in the present tense and the question tag should match the tense of the main verb. Since "is" is the main verb in the sentence, the correct question tag is "isn't he".

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    It won't be anything expensive, ___?

    • A.

      A. won't it

    • B.

      B. isn't it

    • C.

      C. will it

    Correct Answer
    C. C. will it
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "c. will it" because the question is asking for confirmation or agreement that something won't be expensive. The phrase "will it" is used to seek confirmation or agreement in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    There is some milk in the refrigerator, ___?

    • A.

      A. isn't there

    • B.

      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 with a previous statement. In this case, the previous statement is "There is some milk in the refrigerator." By using the question tag "isn't there," it is asking for confirmation or agreement that there is indeed 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 correct answer is "c. do we." This is because the question is in the negative form, and when forming a negative question, we use the auxiliary verb "do" before the subject. In this case, the subject is "we," so the correct form is "do we."

    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. This is because the question is asking if Susan is capable of bringing some food. The phrase "can't she" is used to express doubt or disbelief, implying that Susan is indeed capable of bringing food. The other options, "won't she" and "will she," do not fit the context of the question and therefore are incorrect.

    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 with the statement "The party starts at eight o'clock". The phrase "doesn't it" is a contraction of "does not it", which is used to form a negative question tag. In this case, it is used to seek confirmation that the party does not start at eight o'clock.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The movie was very long, ___?

    • A.

      A. isn't it

    • B.

      B. wasn't it

    • C.

      C. was it

    Correct Answer
    B. B. wasn't it
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "wasn't it." This is because the sentence is in the past tense, and the question tag should match the tense of the main clause. In this case, the main clause is "The movie was very long," which is in the past tense. Therefore, the question tag should also be in the past tense, resulting in "wasn't it."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    There is a lot of noises outside, ___? 

    • A.

      A. aren't there

    • B.

      B. isn't there

    • C.

      C. is there

    Correct Answer
    B. B. isn't there
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "b. isn't there". This is because the sentence is in the negative form and is referring to the noises outside. The word "noises" is plural, so the correct form of the verb "to be" should also be plural. Therefore, "isn't there" is the correct negative form to use in this sentence.
