    How does he

    Q)How does he go the school?

    A) By bus.
    In the bus.
    from bus.

    Do all the three answers correct? Can we also ask the question like How does he go to the school?

    Are all the three answers correct? Can we also ask the question like "How does he go to the school?"
    'How does he go to school?'

    'By bus'.

    'On the bus.'

    Why we can't use "the" before three? " Three" is noun and also there are 3 specific anwers?

    "Three" replaces "the" in that context.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Can't we write: Do all the answers correct? Why not please clarify.

    Re: How does he

    We use "do/does/did" as an auxiliary verb at the start of a question if it precedes another verb.

    Do you correct all your students' work?
    Did he correct your essay before you handed it in?

    In your sentence, "correct" is an adjective so it takes the verb "to be".

    Is it correct?
    Are they correct?

    Yes, it is correct.
    No, they are not correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It would be correct if 'sound' was added before 'correct'.
