: I'd like to know the question tags for the following statements:

: Don't be so critical, _______? and
: Let's sing now,________?

: Thanks.

These statements don't have any natural question tags, because the verbs "do" and "let" are in the imperative mood. There's no question tag for a command ("Go to bed, ______?!"). The closest thing is that the second statement could be made into "Let's sing now, shall we?"
