    question tag...

    one day my friend had a chance to teach english grammar in teaching class. so she taught about question tag. she explained that a question tag didn't need an answer. some of my friends and me didn't agree with her opinion because in our opinion it did require an answer.

    can anyone give some opinions about this? do we really don't need an answer?

    thank you

    A question tag is added to the end of a statement, and usually does need an answer. That's why it's there. It turns a statement into a question.
    It's hot. (Statement.)
    It's hot, isn't it? (Question) Yes, it is. (Answer).
