    Re: choose

    Hi, and welcome Using English.

    What is the sentence trying to say? None of those choices make sense to me.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re:
    .
    It's amazing to see a heart transplant operation doing.
    .

    a) do you have b) have you got c) have you had
    .
    What is the correct choice?

    Please state your opinion, and then one of our online teachers will comment.

    What do you think is the most likely choice?

    Re: choose

    How about:
    .
    He was amazed as he watched the heart transplant operation being performed.
    .
    The only one possible:
    .
    For how long have you had this mobile? Aren't you going to buy a new one?
    .
    Unless it is a test, delete "For" in the previous sentence. (Is it a test?)

    "It's amazing to see a heart transplant operation being done" would be ok.
    "How long have you had this mobile?"
