Hi Viceidol

If this is a sentence from a test, they are probably expecting "hadn't you" as the answer.

In my opinion, however, it's not a sentence you're likely to actually hear someone say.
I understand now. Thank you, Amy! Your answer is very helpful.Emotion: smile

hadn't you

That's is rather important a question, but there's no explanation. For me, I think 'had better' is a modal verb, so we can inverse it as the other helping verb: You'd better finish your homework tongight, had better you?
