How do you turn a statement into a question? With a question tag, of course!
A question tag isn't a piece of paper you hang around a statement's neck or stick on its lapel, it's a little add-on question at the end of a statement. Question tags can make a huge difference in the tone and meaning of a sentence:
You remembered my birthday! (Statement. Happy.)
You remembered my birthday, right? (Question. Hesitant or accusing.)
He wouldn't forget my birthday. (Statement. Confident.)
He wouldn’t forget my birthday, would he? (Question. Uncertain.)
