    1.one use of simple present tense is show habitual action and general
    ex:- affirmative negative

    I am bit confuse as is it should be
    He does not play cricket
    He never play cricket

    2.what is the negative form of infinitive
    ex:-
    i want to go
    i want not to go
    or

    or

    Both "he does not play cricket" and "he never plays cricket" are correct.

    For the other, "I do not (don't) want to go is correct."
