    Has or Have grammar help

    Sentence: "She and the public has/have moved on"


    My question/doubt: What would be the right verb in this sentence has or have ? I think it ought to be verb "has" because article "the" before the word "public" makes it singular, right ? tell us what you think forum.


    Thanks

    Re: Has or Have grammar help

    I think there is to be the auxiliary verb 'to have' because 'She' and 'the public' together make the plural form. But it's just my opinion.

    not a teacher

    The subject, 'she and the public' is plural - so 'have'.
