Question tail/tag
Mostly we use question tags with request, command, proposal, or statement these sentences come with question tag forms… like…
Some semi negative also come with question tags (few little, hardily, scarcely, rarely, seldom)

How to use Question tags?
Negative question = positive tag
Positive question = negative tag

  • He is a good man, doesn't he?
  • He rarely talks to him, does he?
  • Few people daily come to listen his spiritual they? Are they?

Subject of question should always be pronoun, never noun.

When question tags come with these words none, anyone, no one someone, everyone, everybody, anybody, nobody then the subject of question tag is always "he" ,"she" "they"... like
