    question tag for ought to

    Hi

    What question tag should I use for the following sentence?

    She ought to see a doctor, oughtn`t she?

    or,

    She ought to see a doctor, doesn`t she?

    In my opinion, I should use the modal oughtn`t.
    What is your opinion on that?

    Thank you.

    Yes, you are right in your opinion, use "oughtn't".
