Student or Learner
I have some sentence:
"You didn't think he can escape,_____? (1)
a) did you
b) can't he
Which is the right one? I thought it was a, because b doesn't fit and sounds clumsy, isn't it?" (2)
Please check for the two sentence above
a) is correct - You didn't .... did you?
But the tenses are weird. You don't think he can escape, do you? You didn't think he could escape, did you?
b doesn't fit, does it?
b sounds clumsy, doesn't it?
b doesn't fit and sounds clumsy - make it agree with the one that comes last, so - doesn't it?
Or... b doesn't fit and sounds clumsy, right?
