    have to , or has to

    She would not have to enter the house through the bed room window were the keys where they were supposed to be.

    is that correct ??

    I see that she takes has to

    but I'm not sure

    "have to" is correct; add a comma after window

    would is the verb that agrees with the noun in number.

    She has to. or She would have to. Using would, did , didn't, does, the verb is not conjugated.

    It's correct. Good job - that's a tricky one!
