What the right way to make 4 types of question with "has" in the sentence?

My take on this, though it's really wrong I'm pretty sure:

  • She has to get up early.
    • Has she to get up early?
    • Has she to get up early or not?
    • She has to get up early, hasn’t she?
    • When has she to get up?

  • Hello and welcome to Stack Exchange! - Is this an exercise that you have been given by a teacher or that you found in a book? If so can you please give the question exactly as it was stated in the original words? Your answers are okay but they aren't what most natives would say. – chasly from UK Jan 28 at 16:49
  • Who has to get up early? When does she have to get up? What does she have to do? Does she have to get up early? – re_nez Jan 28 at 16:54

    Although they seem logical, in US-style English, those sentences aren't OK. Native speakers here would not use them. We are pretty insistent on inserting the helping verb "does" when we invert the word order to make a question. Even when the verb is "has". e.g. "She has to do it" becomes "Does she have to do it?" – Lorel C. Jan 28 at 17:19

You are right that your examples are wrong.

Interrogatives usually require the modal "do" except in highly stylized or obsolete usages.

Does she have to get up early?

Does she have to get up early or not?

She has to get up early, doesn't she?

When does she have to get up?
