    What's happened is equivalent to what has happened. What is happened does not exist.

    What happened is heard far more commonly than what's happened at least in North America, where I live.

    2) Which is more used at in conversation - "What's happened?" or "What happened?"

    Can you tell me? :)

    Thanks in advance.
    Both "What's happened?" (contraction of "What has happened?") and "What happened?" are fine, depending on context.
    Remember to start every sentence with a capital letter and to end every sentence with a single punctuation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
