Scroll down for a quick explanation.
The correct way to turn the sentence "He likes ice cream." into a negative
sentence is by using the auxiliary verb "
DOES" because the sentence is in the
simple present tense and in the third person (He) and by adding "

likes ice cream.  -->  He DOES NOT like ice cream.
