    No, it isn't. "Quite" is an adverb. Therefore, it adds meaning -"modifies" - "good", which is an adjective.

    Hello ,

    Correct:"It is wrong ,is not it ?"
    False:"It is wrong,
    is it ?
    Because this the rule from Tag Questions.
    Or you can say :"It isn't wrong ,is it "?
    When the first clause is in negative form ,the second must be in positive form and vice versa.
    Try to have a look at this site :
    Tag Questions

    So ,"Quite" is as adverb.


    Hope it helps
    Greetings

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
