    Smile Have and have got in negative question and in question tag

    “Have” and “have got” in Questions




    Are they correct? If I've written it as I've written them below.


    E.g.


    Group 1: informal


    Haven't I got to go? (Or) Haven't I got a flat in Manchester?


    Hasn't He got to go? (Or) Hasn't He got a flat in Manchester?


    Don't I have to go? (Or) Don't I have a flat in Manchester?


    Doesn't he have to go? (Or) Doesn't he have a flat in Manchester?
    I think the First Both aren't formal, they are informal, but are the word orders are correct?


    Group 2: Formal


    Have I not got to go? (Or) Have I not got a flat in Manchester?


    Do I not have to go? (Or) Do I not have a flat in Manchester?


    Has he not got to go? (Or) Has I not got a flat in Manchester?


    Does He not have to go? (Or) Does he not have a flat in Manchester?
    Group 3: Past tense


    Hadn't (he/I/they/she) got to go? (Or) Hadn't (he/I/they/she) got a flat in Manchester?


    Had (he/I/they/she) not got to go? (Or) Had (he/I/they/she) not got a flat in Manchester?


    Didn't (he/I/they/she) have to go? (Or) Didn't (he/I/they/she) Have a flat in Manchester?


    Did (he/I/they/she) not have to go? (Or) Did (he/I/they/she) have a flat in Manchester?

    Group 5 : question tags

    a. I have a question, don't I?/ I don't have a question, do I?
    b. he has an apple, doesn't he? / He doesn't have an apple, does he?
    c. I have got an orange, haven't I? / I haven't got an orange, have I?
    d. I/he had got a bottle of milk, hadn't I/he? (Or) I/he hadn't got a bottle of milk, had I/he?
    e. I/he had a bunch of grapes, didn't I/He? (Or) I/he didn't have a bunch of grapes, did I/he?


    are they possible in English?

    Hasn't He got to go? (Or) Hasn't He got a flat in Manchester?
    You have capitalised he. The questions are OK, but you will not hear this one used much:

    Had (he/I/they/she) not got to go?

    Re: Have and have got in negative question and in question tag

    In American English, "Doesn't he have an apartment in Manchester?" is natural. The rest aren't.
