The meaning of question – tags will change according to  the intonation.

  • If  it  is said with a falling intonation,  it  makes  the sentence sound more like a statement or agreement.

e.g.      –  She is really a beautiful girl, isn’t she?

–   The meeting will begin next Monday, won’t it?

–   Her explanation isn’t correct, is it?

  • The  sentence is more  like a real question or  asking  for confirmation with the rising intonation.

e.g.  –    You have seen Andi somewhere, haven’t you ?

–    The  designers will have finished it before the  end of this month, won’t they ?
