    Re: Has/have

    What does "which" stand for? That is, what's the rest of the sentence? ;-D

    Re: Has/have

    Thanks.

    If "which" refers back to a singular noun, then the verb should be singular.

    Singular Subject + Singular Verb
    Malaysia which I think has spoilt ...
    Malaysia ... has spoilt ...

    If "which" refers back to a plural noun, then the verb should be plural.

    Plural Subject + Plural Verb
    Malaysia and Canada which I think have spoilt ...
    Malaysia and Canada ... have spoilt ...
