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) -
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:https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/revision/grammar/when-to-use-lui-and-leur-to-replace-specific-people-with-him-her-and-them-indirect-object-pronouns
