    Is this question correct? (interrogative + negative )

    Hello teachers,

    Yesterday I read this question in my English reading comprehension book.
    "What does he not do at school?"

    I wonder if this question could also be rephrased as
    "What doesn't he do at school?"
    Is this grammatically correct?

    I consider it correct, but I am not a teacher.

    There is no need to make a new post to say thank you. In the future, just click on the "thank" lonk on the lower left side of your screen.
