    Thumbs down Is it correct?

    Since the above door has provided with latch lock, it deosn't required any keyhole rose.

    Since the above door has provided with only one lock, is it require two keyhole roses

    ****** not a teacher *******

    You can't use the auxiliary to have because it would mean that the door gave it, which doesn't make sense.
    Instead, use "to be".

    Require can't be a past participle, when you do a negative sentence, the verb needs to be in the bare infinitive form (bare infinitive form of "to eat" is "eat", the bare infinitive form of "to stop" is "stop")

    Also (it might be just a mistake while typing), the negative form of does is doesn't.

    Since the above door is provided with latch lock, it doesn't require any keyhole rose.

    *****Not a teacher still****

    Again, don't use "to have" but "to be" because it is not an action of the door, but the state of the door, it is describing the door.

    When you formulate a question, the auxiliary you need to use is "to do", also, don't forget the interrogation mark at the end of your sentence.

    Since the above door is provided with only one lock, does it require two keyhole roses?
