We say... We don’t say...

Were you late for school today? Yes, I was. (NOT You were late for school today? Yes I was.)
Was she with her friends last Saturday? No, she wasn’t. (NOT She was with her friends last Saturday? No, she wasn’t.)
Was he tired yesterday? Yes, he was. (NOT He was tired yesterday? Yes, he was.)
