Please let me know whether the following usage are correct.
1. He has went outside.
2. He has gone outside.
3. He might not come today.
4. He may not come today.
5. The book might have been kept in some other bag.
Thanks in advance
The only wrong construction is sentence #1.
"Went" is the past tense of "to go", and the past tense doesn't
"He went out a while ago."
"He didn't go out a while ago."
"Did he go out a while ago?"
You used "has" correctly in your second sentence: together with the past participle of a verb, "has" and "have" form the present perfect.
"He has gone out."
"Has he gone out yet?"
"He hasn't gone out today."
So, all your sentences but #1 are correct.
