Soal Latihan Bahasa Inggris tentang Tags dan Indirect Questions beserta Kunci Jawabannya

Soal Latihan Bahasa Inggris tentang Tags dan Indirect Questions beserta Kunci Jawabannya – Question tags merupakan jenis kalimat tanya (interrogative sentence) yang digunakan untuk menyatakan bahwa kita setuju dengan lawan bicara kita. Ciri dari Question tags ini biasanya terdapat lawan (bentuk positif/ negatif) dari kata kerja dalam kalimat tanya tersebut, contohnya “You don’t do your homework, do you?”. Kata don’t do bermakna negatif, sedangkan kata do you pada akhir kalimat menyatakan kebalikannya (bermakna positif).

 

Question tags berbeda dengan indirect questions. Indirect questions adalah jenis kalimat tanya dimana kita tidak langsung menanyakan sesuatu kepada seseorang, contohnya “Do you know where the school library is?”.

Indirect questions biasanya digunakan kepada orang yang belum terlalu dikenal untuk menunjukkan kesopanan. Agar lebih jelasnya, kali ini kita akan membahas tentang soal latihan bahasa Inggris tentang tags dan indirect questions beserta kunci jawabannya.
