Il écrit souvant à ses parents? Non,il ne———(ne jamais écrire).

Please help me to fill the blank

This relates to:
Replacing nouns with le, la, l', les = it, him, her, them (direct object pronouns) -

Hi Shruti,


Il écrit souvent à ses parents? - Non, il ne leur écrit jamais.


In this sentence you are replacing the indirect object "ses parents". Since it is 3rd person plural, the pronoun to use is "leur". In case of a direct object it is "les":


Tu as vu mes amis? - Oui, je les ai vu.

@Chris : Don't forget that when using direct object pronouns with auxiliary avoir, you need to agree with it, as it's placed before the auxiliary:


Tu les as vus.  or  Tu les as vues.


@Shruti: Have a look at our lesson on indirect object pronouns:
