“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?

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