is it correct?

So cool !

It seems on the polls that compare British and American English, the British are more in agreement. I'm American, "hasn't" here just doesn't sound right in my head (unless it's said with a British accent of course).

Tdol

Maybe there is a slight bias in the polls as I am a British English speaker and may choose things where I see American usage as different from mine. I am honestly not sure. I will try to write some that divide the British speakers. ;-)

Do you 'have' problems or 'do' problems. Honestly, you don't need to be British to get this question, but it sure helps!!

Trish

Oh, please don't do that, Tdol. I like it the way it is...

Jenny

'he's' an abbreviation of 'he has' so 'hasn't' is correct unlike the usual American usage of 'doesn't'

Vivian

That's a great test.
