Which of the following does the passage mention about tag questions in African American Vernacular English?
The passage states that In all of these cases, (including tag questions) the speaker uses the simplified forms is or was (...).
Habitual action is never mentioned in reference to tag questions (only in reference to AAVE's usage of the word be).
The passage states that the verb to be is what rids a sentence of possible ambiguity. Tag questions are only an example of such usage.
The passage states that the verb of a tag question will be is or was no matter what the subject is.
We have no information to make such a statement; although the grammar may be different between AAVE and standard English, tag questions presumably have the same overall structure and function.
Tag questions will not use any other forms of the verb to be except for is and was.
