Tag question (3)

Post by SARDORBEK » Wed Dec 14, 2011 9:34 am

I'm late,.....?

a) aren't I
b) am I not

Which answer is more correct? Are both of them possible?
If so, which one is most commonly used and more grammatically correct?
Is there a difference between formal and informal style?

Many thanks...

Both possible.
(B) is very formal.
