    the correct one is he doesn't carry. it depends on the pronoune you're using like he, she and it are always followed by doesn't or after the does. for don't it's after they, we and you. i hope i'm right.

    ex. we don't liked you.
    he doesn't liked.

    Hi Nilesh



    "Don`t" is used as follows:

    I, you[singular and plural], we, they don`t [carry]

    "Doesn`t" is used with the third person singular :he,she,it

    The correct answer is :

    He doesn`t carry

    Hi Isko

    You are right . The "don`t" and "doesn`t" usage depends on the pronoun used in the sentence.

    Sorry to tell you that your examples are wrong because they are a kind of a mixture between present tense and past tense forms.

    e.g: We don`t like you - not "liked"
    He doesn`t like you - not "liked"

    The first part of your message is ok.


    Best wishes
