see vs sees
" Anybody ____ Lila ? We are looking for her.
see or sees ?
I think anybody is a singular subject. ' sees ' is the answer right ?
Re: see vs sees
The expression is "Anybody see Lila?" Perhaps that violates the "rule", but that is the way it is. :wink: At any rate, that is short for "Does anybody see Lila", which is a variation of "Has anybody seen Lila?" (I sure hope they find Lila soon.)

It's an elliptical sentence that has lost the auxiliary verb, so 'sees' would sound rather strange.
