    doesn't he or she?

    I think theteacher is wrong, ______?
    No, I donít thinkso.

    A donít you B donítI
    C doesnít he D doesnít she

    I think the right answer is C or D. Because the man was talking about if the teacher was wrong. But we don't know if the teacher is a man or women. So I think it's hard to make choice.

    Re: doesn't he or she?

    No, the first person (the man, as you say) wants to know if the second person agrees with him. The answer is not C or D.

    Okay -- yes, the answer is A.

    Please don't ask us to do homework tasks for you.

    I think the right answer is C or D, because the man was talking about whether the teacher was wrong. But we don't know if the teacher is a man or women. (Hint: That has NOTHING to do with the question.) So I think it's hard to make choice.
    When you leave out spaces, the entire sentence is wrong. You HAVE TO put spaces between words - ALWAYS!

    Re: doesn't he or she?

    Mr. jutfrank Thanks for your answering! Actually, I do a lot of exercises almost every day. These questions are part of them. Because I could not understand them, I posted them here for help. and I also wrote down my ideas about them. So I have never asked you to do homework for me.

    That's good, Mike. But can you put spaces between all the words before you submit your questions? The way you're doing it makes it hard for us to read and gives us extra work making corrections.

    Thanks!

    Re: doesn't he or she?

    As I said in a previous thread, I will close any more threads that have spaces missing due to copy/paste or cut/paste by the OP. Mike12345, it is up to you to fix those errors before posting.

    Also, don't refer to users here as "Mr. [username]". There is no need for any formal address and it shows that you assume the user is male.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
