since the sentence is negative, does it not require "hai" at the end? If it were Neha drinks tea would "hai" be added? Or is it because she is not in the act of drinking tea but it's just a fact that she does/does not?
The former. In negative sentences, any conjugation of होना is dropped, unless it is the main (only) verb.
मैं पढ़ता हूँ = I read
मैं नहीं पढ़ता = I don't read
मैं लड़का हूँ = I am a boy
मैं लड़का नहीं हूँ = I am not a boy
Very helpful. Thank you
है is optional with negatives, but it's not wrong to include!
But I got marked wrong for नेहा चाय पीती नहीं है. Is that wrong? Does the “nahi” go before the “piti”?
Yes. नहीं (nahī) goes before the verb.
पीती (pītī) is the main part of the verb.
Thanks for the clarification!
Yeah it absolutely requires "hai". Because at the end of the sentence one particular letter is needed except for few questioning sentences. But in the options it wasn't given.
Is it not more common to reverse the order of piti and nahi~ in this sentence?
people use it this way and the reverse way....both are correct
sounds Neha chai nehi piti
Yes it does
Where is hai in this sentence
This is incorrect! It should be hai in the end
It is optional.
As there is another verb (पीती) after नहीं , the hai (है) at the end may be dropped.
Q : Neha does not drink tea.
So i gave ans : neha chai nahi pithi (ha) because i dint had option called (hei)
So it say u have a typo..
Whats wrng there?
Please say me
why is it नहीं and not नही? Is there any difference in the pronounciation?
I got this while learning the alphabet in area 1.. how????

The fact that I made a typo and still got it right
That is no fair my teacher thought us that what i wrote
