    Lightbulb 'To has', 'to have', or 'to had'?

    Which of these are correct?

    1. The yogurt is supposed to has calcium.

    2. The yogurt is supposed to have calcium.

    3. The yogurt is supposed to had calcium.

    4. Additional intake has not been shown to have advanced benefit related to probiotics and may lead to excess calorie intake or insufficient intake of other food groups.

    Please explain why?

    Thanks...

    (Not a Teacher)

    2 is the only correct sentence. I'm not sure exactly what you want me to do with 4. That said 4 looks all right. Personally, I would omit 'advanced' and just write 'to have benefits'.

    Tepal,

    (1) May I most respectfully suggest that (when you have time), you check your textbook, the Web, or the

    search box at this website for "infinitive."

    (2) The infinitive never changes form. That is, "to have" is always "to have." NEVER: to has/ to had.

    (3) People are supposed to have 8 hours of sleep every day.
    Thread starters are supposed to thank people who answer their questions.
    People who answer questions are supposed to be courteous and patient.
    Government leaders are supposed to help the people.
    Drivers are supposed to obey the traffic laws.


    Have a nice day!

    Bear in mind that you might see "It was supposed to have had sugar in it but I chose to leave it out" or something similar.
