In English, Positive Question is same as Korean Positive Question.However English vs. Korean Negative Question is a bit tricky.

i.e. Eng. : Aren't you hungry? -Yes. I'm hungry
-No.I'm not hungry

Kor. : 배고 프지 않아요? - 네.배고 프지 않아요.
- 아니요.배고 파요.

Please give me an assurance that my example sentence is correct.
고마워요

    Good job for figuring that out.
    Note that most Koreans would just say 네 or 아니오, whereas an English speaker would add 'I am' or 'I'm not' to clarify.
