    didn't he see it or did he choose to...

    Which are correct:

    1-Didn't he see the hitchhiker or did he choose not to stop?
    2-Didn't he see the hitchhiker or did he just not stop?
    3-Didn't he see the hitchhiker or did he not stop?
    4-Didn't he see the hitchhiker or didn't he stop?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Of those 4, 1 and 2 work best for me too. However, I would prefer it to start "Did he not see the hitchhiker ...", rather than "Didn't he see ..."
