In the above examples, please note that :

1 'Helping Verb' is used with subject to make Tag type questions.
2 If statement is positive then Question Tag is Negative and if statement is negative then Question Tag is positive. In positive Imperative sentence, Question Tag can either be positive or negative but in negative Imperative sentence, Question Tag will be only positive.
3 'Comma(,)' is put after statement to write Question Tag.
4 When Question Tag is negative, we write short form of 'Negative Helping Verb' e.g. 'Are not we' is written as 'Aren't we'
5 Noun does not come in Question Tag. Pronoun comes in Question Tag e.g. If subject of statement is 'Avyan' then 'He' will come, If subject of statement is 'Vartika' then 'She' will come.. The gender (male-female) and Singular/Plural of the pronoun will be decided as per Subject of the statement.
