    It doesn't look exactly like it did before.

    Hello,

    (1)It doesn't look exactly like it did before.
    (2)You look like your mother.

    In sentence (1), can I delete “did” after “it”?
    In sentence (2), can I add “does” after “mother”?

    No, you can't remove "did" after "it".
    Yes, you could add "does" after "mother" but it's unnecessary.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
