Ja-/Nein-Frage

Ja-/Nein-Frage or Yes-/No-Question is a type of question, to which we can answer in no or yes.

But German language has 3 answers to this kind of question: ja, nein, doch.

For example:

Bist du Manager hier?                          Nein, ich bin Kellner hier.
Are you manager here?                        No, I am waiter here.

Bist du Manager hier?                          Ja, ich bin Manager hier.
Are you manager here?                        Yes, I am manager here.

And then, there is third type of Ja-/Nein-Frage, when the question itself contains a negative tag. So, if you want answer this question in ‘no’, you simply answer in with a ‘nein’. For example:

Bist du nicht Manager hier?               Nein, ich bin Kellner hier.

But, if you want to answer this question in ‘yes’, you answer with ‘doch’. For example:

Bist du nicht Manager hier?               Doch, ich bin Manager hier.
Are you manager here?                        Of course, I am manager here.
