    1. 'has' is used with the 3rd person singular subjects:

    She has
    He has
    It has

    Has she?
    Has he?
    Has it?

    2. 'have' is used elsewhere:

    I have
    We have
    You have
    They have

    Have I?
    Have we?
    Have you?
    Have they?

    3. 'have' is also used with auxiliary verbs (do, will, etc) and modals (would, should, could, can, may might, etc.):

    She does have
    Does she have?

    He will have
    Will he have?

    It would have
    Would it have?

    She should have
    Should she have?

    He can have
    Can he have?

    It could have
    Could it have?

    She may have
    May she have?

    He might have
    Might he have?

    I do have
    Do I have?

    We do have
    Do we have?

    You will have
    Will you have?

    They would have
    Would they have?

    I should have
    Should I have?

    We may have
    May we have?

    We might have
    Might we have?

    You could have
    Could you have?

    They can have
    Can they have?

    :D

    In addition:

    Has or have is also used in present perfect tense( of course together with past participle).

    He/She has understood the question.
    It has rained heavily.
    I/You/We/They have understood the question.

    :wink:
