Question Tag - Pembahasan dan Latihan soal

Posted by Memahami Teks Bahasa Inggris on 15 October 2013

Question tags adalah pertanyaan pendek diakhir setiap kalimat terutama sering dijumpai pada dialog percakapan bahasa Inggris. Ada banyak macam dan bentuk dari question tags ini namun secara umum rumus cara membuat question tags ini tidaklah sulit. Lihat tabel dibawah ini:

Pattern / Kondisi Contoh Kalimat
Jika kalimat utama berbentuk positif maka question tagnya adalah negatif
  • He’s a doctor, isn’t he?
  • You work in a bank, don’t you?

Jika kalimat utama berbentu negatif maka questionya adalah positif
  • You haven’t met him, have you?
  • She isn’t coming, is she?
Jika kalimat utama memakai auxiliary (kata bantu BE dan HAVE) maka question tagnya menggunaka kata BE dan HAVE juga
The question tag uses the same verb as the main part of the sentence. If this is an auxiliary verb (‘have’, ‘be’) then the question tag is made with the auxiliary verb.
  • They’ve written that letter for a few days, haven’t they?
  • They weren’t there, were they?
  • He had arranged it before, hadn’t he?
  • This isn’t benefit, is it?
Jika kalimat utama tidak menggunakan auxiliary verb alias menggunakan kata kerja murni maka question tagnya memakai bentuk modal (kata bantu DO atau DOES dan DID)
  • I did that, didn’t I?
  • You don’t remember me, do you?
  • She drinks coffee, doesn’t she?
Jika kalimat utama menggunakan modal verb (CAN, MAY, COULD, WILL, etc) maka questios tagnya menggunaka kta bantu yang sama
  • They couldn’t listen to me, could they?
  • You won’t speak to anyone, will you?
EXCEPTION: Jika kalimat utama menggunakan tobe "AM" maka quetion tanya menggunakan ARN'T
  • I’m the best, aren’t I?
Membuat question tags bahasa Inggris itu mudah, bukan? Nah untuk memastikan kita telah memahami apa dan bagamina cara membuat question tags dalam bahasa Inggris, sekarang kita lanjutkan pada latihan soal dibawah ini:
