Use the question phrase isn't it only when the preceding statement contains the word is: It is a hot day, isn't it?
In this form of question, use the same tense and person as in the preceding statement and use the correct auxiliary. If, however, the preceding statement is in the negative form, the question phrase omits not. We say:
1. They are on holiday, aren't they?
They aren't on holiday, are they?
2. You speak English, don't you?
You don't speak French; do you?
Use the interrogative pronoun which? for both people and things, when it asks for one out of a definite number.
