Context not clear to clarify what is right or wrong.

Yhere is nothing in the context and no hint as to why either answer could or could not be correct.

_______ il ne vienne pas?How come he's not coming?Comment ça se fait qu'Comment ce fait-il qu'

Bonjour Ian,

As Maarten and Chris mentioned both are correct. 

As per the lesson, 'how come...?' means 'comment ça se fait que...' or 'comment se fait-il que...'

In this kwiz, if it is a multiple choice question, only one of the translations above is given. If it was a written answer, both are accepted.  

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée!

I don't know what the choices given were, but both answers you mention are correct.

Both answers correctly written would be right «comment ça se fait qu' » or «comment se fait-il qu' »- you can use either, the latter being more 'formal'.  However you have written «comment CE fait-il qu' » above. That would not be marked correct in a quiz.
