    Re: Do anyone knows

    Here are two rules:
    "Anyone" takes a singular verb.
    When you have a form of "to do" then the other form is in the infinitive (no conjugation).

    With those two rules, which one do you think is right?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    No it isn't. It needs a punctuation mark at the end.
