You have lots of "negative words" - pas, jamais, rien etc. If you're talking about the past, which is when there's often confusion (consider me frequently confused!), there's (usually!) the ne then if necessary the auxiliary - a, est, sont, avons etc, then the negative word - pas, jamais etc. Finally there's the past participle of the verb: payé in this case if it were in the perfect past. Il n'a jamais payé.
If it's the imperfect past tense as in the exercise above, the negative word goes directly after the verb (because? There are probably other reasons) there's only the pronoun & the verb to negate.
Hopefully, somebody far better than I will explain it all.
