Tag questions (or question tags) turn a statement into a question. They are often used for checking information that we think we know is true.

Tag questions are made using an auxiliary verb and a subject pronoun. If there is an auxiliary verb in the statement, we use it to form the question tag.

Sometimes there is no auxiliary verb already in the statement, so we use do/ does/ did and the subject pronoun
