    Has or Have here, very confusing, pls help.

    Friends, check my sentence and tell me I should use Has or Have with the word politics. I'm confuse because word politic itself is a word. My sentence is : "Politics has become boring". Is this sentence right or should I use have instead of has ? Thanks

    "politic" is a word but, it is not a noun; it is an adjective.
    "politics" is usually singular, and you should use has in your sentence.

    Politics has become boring.
