1. It is used "have asked" in the first sentence, meaning the question has been asked for more than once, and Neil has always provided the same answer, so "replies" is used.
2. It is kind of a fact that Neil does want a quiet life and live on a farm with his family, so present tense is used.資料來源： myself
