Home » Listening » How to Use Is: Negative Answers About State

In the previous lesson, we learned how to answer in an affirmative sentence.

In this lesson, we shall learn how to answer in a negative sentence.

Formation of a negative answer

In this formation, we use ‘not’ with ‘is’.

So, the formation of a negative answer is as follows:

  • No, + subject ( he/she/it / any singular noun) + is + not + other words.

In brief, we can say:

  • No, + subject + isn’t.
  • No, he isn’t.
  • No, she isn’t.
  • No, it isn’t.
