    Question about helping verb, main verb and determiner

    Hi,

    Is "have" the main verb in this question? I think "do" is the helping verb. Am I right?

    Do you have any pets?

    Also, Is the word "any" a determiner that describes the noun in the question above?

    Zoli, please note that a better title would have been Do you have any pets?
