Is there anything called a question tag in english grammar?

Which statement?

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

'The whole person changes, why can't a habit?'

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.**

No! It was about a trivial habit which belonged to her.

The next surely cannot guess that habit

Nope, it is something related to inks.

You still did not answer if there is anything like question tag

I misjudged her, I am sorry.

She chews on her pen?

tbey? Is that the new Ebay?

Yes, she chews on her pen. This is a common habit many people want to break.

She is awesome, she does not do that.

tbay is a typo

I'll tell you about the habit but after I finish a couple of problems

Tbey is a typing error.

Nah, I don't think that's it.

Post them if you trouble or as problems for the rest of us. I suggest you call it Agnishom's Agonizers.

I do not think he will choose it for a thread name.

Math problems I presume.

yes, they are but they are mundane problems and I can do them myself

Okay, I was suggesting that you start a thread if you like. Other people may not find them so mundane. You do not have to unless you want to. Also, you can change the problems, it is a great exercise and reveals a weakness in mathematics.

I think so too but it is a lot of work. Ganesh found problems for years.

He is ill, I hope for him to have a speedy recovery and be back here.

If I created a thread I would choose that name.

They are really mundane. Something like

I am afraid that no math like that is ever mundane. There are several ways to do that and that makes it very interesting.

What from? Or is it something he wishes to keep unknown?
