    Smile What shoule be filled in?

    If: A: It's a nice day, isn't it?


    Then: what should be added in the following sentences?

    B: There exists a doubt whether there is water on the Mars,------?


    C: Either you or I am wrong,------?

    By the way, what is this grammaticl phenomenon?

    The phenomenon is that normal tag questions can't be applied to every sentence.

    In both sentences you can use "isn't that true/correct/right?"
