  1   Quando o verbo na oração principal estiver na afirmativa, o verbo na question tag é normalmente empregue na negativa:

Exemplo:   It's easy, isn't it?



  2   Quando o verbo na oração principal é be, emprega-se o mesmo na question tag:

ExampleSignificado

(1) note a diferença entre os dois verbos (am, are) na 1ª pessoa do singular - aqui é uma excepção

ExampleSignificado

There was something wrong, wasn't there?Houve alguma coisa de errado, não houve?

She likes it, doesn't she?Ela gosta, não gosta?
