    This one of the example sentences in your book. I'm pretty sure that it's not a natural sentence. The normal question form is, 'Did he use to...?'

    I was also wondering about that sentence since I've never heard or said like that!

    Thank you so much!!!

    This is a perfectly grammatical sentence and one that would have been widely used many years ago. However, these days that form is rare.

    I had to use that form until I got safely through my A Levels.
