Tag questions

A tag question is added to the end of a statement.  If the sentence is affirmative, the tag question is negative.

He can read a book, can´t he?
It takes about 2 hours by bus, doesn´t it?
They were at the office, weren´t they?

If the sentence is negative, the tag question is affirmative.

The bus doesn´t arrive at 4:00, does it?
Layla didn´t  buy her dresses, did she?
The man hasn´t come yet, has he?

Tag questions are usually added to confirm information.  Pay attention to  the tenses used.  They have to be in agreement with the tag question used.
