Forming negative interrogative constructions

The negative interrogative form is commonly used, especially in spoken English:
Doesn't Kevin leave today? I believe Kevin is going to leave today: is that true?
Don't you think Susie seems a little bit nervous today? I think Susie seems nervous today: do you agree?
Couldn't you come a little earlier? Would you be able to arrive a little earlier, or not?
Didn't you want a new car? I thought you wanted a new car. Is that not true?
We form expressions such as 'Isn't it?', 'Won't he?', 'Doesn't she?' etc. using the negative interrogative construction.
Bob will fix this problem, won't he?
You were sick, weren't you?
