    Question something not sure about..

    I have a simple question...

    when you use "should" in a sentence with the 3rd. person how do you write the verb?

    I think that is in this way: " He/She Should KNOW " without the s in the verb, but someone told me that when you use it in question way thatīs the correct way.. but if itīs an afirmation you should write it like " He/She should KNOWS " with the third termination in the verb.

    So I am confused.

    thanks for your help

    She should know

    After a modal verb, we don't add the -s. I'm afraid the person who told you that is wrong.
