    If you conjugate the verb "to have", do you find "have has" (which would be "haven't has" in the negative) anywhere in the list? If so, where? What tense?

    I've looked at the link and seen the question.

    So - does the original poster think it's correct or does he/she think it might be a typo (error) in the question?

    Yes, it's a typo. Good eye.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
