- He didn´t used to smoke CORRECT ANSWER
Did indicated that the sentence is past tense so 'used to' should not be the answer. Shouldn't the answer be 'use to'?Thanks in advances.
Thanks a lot. The English test i did has many mistakes.
For some information on 'used to', please see here.
I've noticed that you keep saying "Thanks in advances." at the end. But it should be "Thank you in advance."

Well, I used to use it (to be polite), but now I don't. I just say "Thank you." instead.
'Didn't used to' is clearly wrong.
In my boyhood, people used to say 'used not to', but this is rare now.
PS As, in 'used to', the /d/ often assimilates to the voicelessness of the 't', giving [ju:stʊ] before a vowel or [ju:stə] before a consonant.
