English grammar

He likes pears. (negative sentence) ¡æ

He is the third person singular, so you should put doesn't before the base form of the verb like. Then you can change the affirmative sentence into the negative sentence as follws.
He doesn't like pears. Remember that you should use the base verb 'like' after 'don't' or 'doesn't'.

  1. He is the third person singular, so you should put doesn't before the base form of the verb like. Then you can change the affirmative sentence into the negative sentence as follows:

    Remember that you should use the base verb like after don't or doesn't.

    I corrected spelling and punctuation in bold.

    When you are referring to a word or phrase or sentence as a word, not a grammatical part of the sentence, you should use italics (or underlining if you're writing by hand):

    Your use of articles is fine.
