    Yes, he is. He is always mad at his brother.
    No, he never is. He is never mad at his brother. Change "he never is" to "he is never" or delete it.

    Many thanks

    He is never mad at his brother is fine. Manas - why did you suggest a change to He never is... which is not a good English structure in this case.

    Hi Anglika,
    I agree with you but I suggested to change or delete the short sentence 'he never is' after No, as it sounds odd.
