    Regarding the usage of "s"

    Context: Confusion arisen when trying to phrase a question.

    Sentence: "Anybody knows the name of the hero in this video ?"

    My question/doubt: Should the word know in the above mention sentence, which is a question, have "s" at its end ? Or would the complete rephrasing of the sentence like this would be more correct : "Does anybody know the name of the hero in this video ?"

    Thanks

    Not a teacher

    In my opinion I would say (informal conversation with a friend, etc) "Anybody know the name of the hero in this video ?" (without 's') However as you say it should really be said/written: "Does anybody know the name of the hero in this video ?"
