    "Hasn't he?" would be correct in my opinion but, as you say it wasn't an option, perhaps they are looking for "doesn't he?

    Thank you for creating the new thread!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
