Home » Listening » Were: Negative Answers about Profession

In this chapter, we shall learn how to answer in a negative sentence about the past profession.

We shall answer in a complete sentence as well as in brief.

Now, we shall answer in a negative sentence.

Formation of a negative answer

The formation of this sentence is the same as the negative answers about the state.

So, the formation of a negative answer is as;

  • No, + subject (we/you/they/any plural noun) + were not+ remaining words.

In brief, we can answer as;

  • No, + subject + weren’t.
