    Right has or have verb in this sentence ?

    What would be the correct verb in this sentence has or have ? I think it would be "has" because "editor" is third person singular here, correct me if I'm wrong. I'm bit confuse so need your help.



    Sentence: "What level of knowledge of history editor of that news sensationalizing channel have/has ?"


    Thanks

    Thanks
    I believe that what confuses you(and confuses me) is the lack of comma(s) and a definite article. I can't be sure if it is the editor or the history editor .And I would reword it as;

    What is the level of knowledge of history that the editor of that sensationalizing news channel has.

    That's ok, but there should be a question mark at the end. It could be better and more simply said, however, as "What does the editor of that sensationalising news channel know about history?"
