There used to be a famous ancient city here,………………...?
A. wasn’t it? B. wasn’t there C. didn’t it D. didn’t there
I choose C.
Help me please. Thanks in advance.
For this reply, I started to write an explanation of how you could work out that it was B. Then, the more I looked at it, the more I realised that I would say "There used to be ..., didn't there?"
I would use "wasn't there?" if the sentence had started "There was a famous ancient city ..."
I'd say D.
I'd use D), but B) sounds OK to me too and could imagine using it in conversation. In answering a question like this, though, I would choose D).
