Simple Present: Negative Statements-Auxiliary Do/Does_ Practice Exercise

Negative statements
In order to form a negative statement, the Simple Present of the auxiliary do followed by the word not is placed before the bare
infinitive of the verb. For example:

Affirmative Statement          Negative Statement
  I work.             I do not work.
  You work.             You do not work.
  He works.             He does not work.
  She works.             She does not work.
  It works.             It does not work.
  We work.             We do not work.
  They work.             They do not work.

In spoken English, the following contractions are often used:
Without contractions                              With contractions
  do not  don't
  does not  doesn't

Change the affirmative statements  into negative statements. 
For example: 
 She walks to work. She does not/doesn't walk to work. 
 They take the bus. They do not/don't take the bus.

1. I do not/don't hurry home.
2. He does not/ doesn't drive a truck.
3. You do not/don't follow the news.
4. They do not/ don't want a pet.
5. She does not/doesn't like flowers.
