In each one, either word can be used.

Why not have a look at this, especially the "Same-way question tags "section?

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Although positive statement, positive tag can be used to express surprise or even a threat, it's FAR less common than postive statement, negative tag.
1. aren't
2. aren't
3. aren't
4. aren't
There are several adverbs and determiners which are negative in meaning but not in form. They include: seldom, rarely; scarcely, hardly, barely; little, few (in contrast to the positive a little and a few) They can effect clause negation: for example sentences in which they appear generally require a positive tag question.

1. There are few students in the classroom, ____ there? (A) are (B) aren't

I think the answer is A because few is negative in meaning. Am I right?

3. There are only a few students in the classroom, ____ there? (A) are (B) aren't

Is only a few positive or negative in meaning?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Both of those should also take "aren't."
Thank you very much, Grammar Greek.
