    Active to Passive Tense Question Has/Have

    I have a question. I have the sentence:

    Has anyone ever hypnotized you?

    I am supposed to make this sentence passive.

    Have you ever been hypnotized?

    Why do I use has in the first sentence and have in the second? Also, what verb tenses are these sentences.

    Thank you for your help.

    Re: Active to Passive Tense Question Has/Have

    Why do I use has in the first sentence and have in the second?
    Because has refers to anyone and have refers to you.
    These sentences are in Present Perfect.
