Question tags are short questions that we usually put at the end of a sentence. Auxiliary verbs are utilized in these tags.
Negative tags are used after positive statements, while positive tags are used after negative statements. For example:
He is coming, isn't he? (negative tag after a positive statement)
He is not coming, is he? (positive tag after a negative statement)
Use do/does/did for present and past simple, such as:
Daisy sings well, doesn't she?
These kids sing well, don't they?
Henry sang well, didn't he?
