He does not have a bike is wrong? It has to be bicycle?

Hmm. I get the "of his/him" but no subj per se confused me. I thought "not his bicycle"? Seems a lot of interpretation going on here?

(Coming back to edit: on the other hand, all of the other exercises in this lesson seem to have the same construction with the same "implied possession" (or lack thereof), so maybe that IS the lesson?

How would you say ‘it is not her bicycle?’

Update 1 month later:

Also how to say “that is not her/his bicycle”
