[i]5 a) do you say; b) have you said; c) you said; d) you say; e) all the above variants are wrong.

******************************************************
I imagine (a) is the intended answer, but it is rather context-dependent.

***************************************************

6 a) he didn't answer; b) he doesn't answer; c) he hasn't answered; d) doesn't he answer; e) all the above variants are wrong.

******************************************************
Grammatically, (a), (b) or (c) could fit, but I imagine (b) is the intended answer (assuming that 'he' is the addressee).
