    Default question tags; must have ...

    I have problems with question tags in these sentences:

    She must have done it, must not/ has not/? she?

    No, she can’t (could ?) have done it (is can’t have the opposite of must have?), can/could/has/? she?

    Which of the question tags are right?

    1 must have done it.... mustn't she/must she not?
    2 can't have done it... can she?

    Arrow Re: question tags; must have ...

    My $.02:

    "She must have done it, right?" or "She must have done it, or did she?"

    "No, she couldn`t have done it, could she?"

    Hope I helped!
