But why isn't he.. why not doesn't he ?

Arihant Jain said: (Aug 24, 2012)  
With third person singular "does is used".

Dhivya said: (Dec 21, 2013)  
Because it is the simple present tense, he never like the word dislike, so B is the answer.

It is -ve form sentence the question tag must be in +ve form. So, does he is the correct.

Prasanthi said: (Feb 6, 2016)  
Yes, if sentence is negative form then question should be in positive. Then answer should be option D (does he).

Can anyone justify the given answer B?

If the statement is negative the tag should be positive so does he is right i.e. D.

Uma said: (Jun 1, 2017)  
What is the difference between does and did? Please, anyone explain.

S Keshri said: (Jun 25, 2017)  
Since dislike is already a negative word then its question tag should be positive. Hence "does he" should be correct answer.

Sonu said: (Oct 18, 2017)  
Does he? Is the right answer.

Simple present and gives negative mean.

Kaushal Kumar Goyal said: (Dec 28, 2017)  
I too think it is option D.

Inbavalli said: (Dec 19, 2018)  
For negative sentence, the question must be in positive ways, and does he will be the right answer for this.

Dharani said: (Jun 2, 2019)  

Does is for present tense that too for third person singular, did used in the past tense.
