I have one more question? How would you explain the fact that contemporary English course books do not teach the strucure.[Has she a car?]
Although survivors of the stone age such as Bhaisa and I were taught that has she is correct, and that has she got is not really acceptable, especially in formal situations, times have changed.
Some people now regard has she got or, especially for Americans, does she have as the only natural forms. It probably won't be long before that is true, but it isn't yet.
I feel that the couse books are right in presenting forms that are now generally acceptable in normal conversation. I regret that they give little acknowledgement to a form that is still used in more formal writing, and by many older people in speech.
