Yes, it is also possible to say "This is his previous girlfriend".

I like "former" better. To me, "previous" contains at least the suggestion that he has a new one, whereas "former" seems more agnostic on that question.

Yes that's what I entered this time and came to check if anyone else was suggesting it yet (-:

You may also say 这是他前女友。i feel that this is literally most accurate. The given answer sounds like " this is his girlfriend in the past"
