    Default Do you have

    Please, would you take a look at these two sentences and correct them.

    1. "Do you have a pound or two?" asked her a beggar who was haggard and smelled badly.
    2. "Do you have a pound or two?" a beggar asked her,who, judging by his clothes did not wash for months.

    2. "Do you have a pound or two?" a beggar asked her,who, judging by his clothes did had not washed for months.

    You also need to use an adjective. not an adverb.
