    No, it's not. There are at least two errors. The first is word number two. Have a look at that first and see if you can work out what's wrong.

    Peter believes John has (a) supernatural talent.

    Thanks for your correction!

    This sentence is copied from Grammar book written by a non native English teacher.
    This is why I post it here to see if native speakers think that that sentence is correct.

    Thanks again!

    If that's the standard of English in that grammar book, I recommend throwing the book away as soon as possible, and writing a letter of complaint to the author/publisher!!
