Hint:Positive sentence – affirmative sentence is a positive by nature and negation such as no, never, not, nothing and nobody. For example: Aptitude test saying that you're passing.

Complete answer:
Option A) Will you? – is an incorrect answer because the meaning of ‘will you?’ used to talk about what is going to happen in the future. However, there is no such scenario in the sentence. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.
Option B) Can’t you? – is an incorrect answer because the meaning of ‘can’t you?’ means cannot. This is inappropriate in the sentence. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.
Option C) Are you? – is an incorrect answer because ‘are you?’ is inappropriate. Are you is used after a preposition to refer to the person or people being spoken or written to’. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.
Option D) Aren’t you? – is the correct answer because ‘aren’t you?’ is used to refer to asking a question. They are used when people want to confirm whether the other person agrees with them like the question asked in the sentence. Thus, this is the most appropriate answer.

Hence the correct answer is option D.

Note:When the sentence is in a positive sense, the question tag should be negative and in the same tense as the question, unless it is an imperative sentence where both positive and negative question tags fit. Hence Option D is correct. The rest do not adhere to this rule, hence incorrect.
