    Smile really wrong??

    Do you know anybody having lost a cat?

    Is there really anything wrong with this sentence?
    Why doesn't everyone approve of it?
    Thank you.

    Well, the person who wrote this example (taken from an English language test) seems to disagree:

    错句:Do you know anyone having lost a cat?
    应改为:Do you know anyone who has lost a cat?

          你知道有谁丢了一只猫?
