    Have/Has

    Could anyone please let me know which one of the following sentences is correct??

    Does your father have got a car?
    or
    Does your father has got a car?

    As father is singular so it must take has but it feels as if have is correct. Please help.

    The first one is correct.

    Re: Have/Has

    Neither is correct. "Does your father have a car" is correct.

    Re: Have/Has

    "To have" and "to have got" mean the same thing. In fact, when I was teaching in Spain, I discovered that Spanish schoolchildren are being taught "to have got" instead of "to have". However, the behave differently in the interrogative.

    To have

    Does your father have a car?
    Do you have a car?


    To have got

    Has your father got a car?
    Have you got a car?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    My bad, I didn't notice there was "got" . What a shame.
