Hello Everybody,

What is the tag question for 'there are too many chairs in this room, '

Does too make sentences negative?

No, it is an affirmative statement, so the standard tag question would be "aren't there?".

"are there?" is also possible, with a different connotation. "... aren't there?" would normally be looking for confirmation of the speaker's belief that there are too many, while "... are there?" might be looking for confirmation of something the speaker has heard, or, depending on tone of voice, expressing unhappiness at the suggestion that there are too many chairs. (This distinction has nothing specifically to do with the word "too" but applies generally to affirmative statements.)
