— She seems to be a singer.
— ____ . Her records sell very well.
A. So she is
B. So is she
C. So she does
D. So does she
I would choose A. But is C fine too?
And in this sentence,
He seems to be a doctor, isn't/doesn't he? do both tag questions all right?
Could I ask native speakers to help me please? Thank you in advance.
@ engee30 - you seem to refer the answer to the "seem" of the first sentence. (Yes, she seems to be a singer).
Isn't A also possible in the meaning of "Yes, she is a singer." - assuming the second person knows for sure that she actually IS a singer?
She seems to be a singer.
(But) she is a singer. Her records sell very well.
I think I get it now, if the second speaker wants to confirm that he is certain that she actually is a singer, he would say something like: "Yes, she is a singer." - not just "Yes, she is."

She seems what? A singer. So she is.
Clark, sorry, yours is okay too, and, to tell you the truth, is more natural in this conversation than C.
