    Re: None of my friend/friends has/have

    Hello Bash

    For #1 you can say:

    1a. None of my friends lives in America.
    1b. None of my friends live in America.

    Some native speakers dislike the use of a plural verb with "none", as in 1b. However, in some kinds of English – British, for instance – it's very common.

    For #2, these are correct:

    2a. What do you look like?
    2b. Whom do you resemble?

    There is a difference, though: 2a means "what thing do you look like?", whereas 2b means "what person do you look like?".

    MrP

    PS: Rather than "Your suggestions will be highly appreciable", you would say "Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated".
