    After the dinner everyone compliments the food.

    1. AFTER THE DINNER EVERYONE COMPLIMENTS THE FOOD.
    -why not "everyone compliment"?
    -Everyone are they (everyone)
    I compliment
    you compliment
    he/she/it compliments
    we compliment
    you compliment
    they compliment


    2. WHO HAS FORGOTTEN TO DO THEIR HOMEWORK?
    why not "have forgotten"? They have forgotten, i have forgotten...


    3. WHO NEVER LISTENS TO MUSIC? ; WHO SAIS THAT HE IS NO GOOD?
    Why not"who say that"?

    2 and 3: "Who" is a singular pronoun. It takes a singular verb.

    In the first, "everyone" is considered singular, so it takes "compliments".

    We don't compliment food. We compliment the chef/cook/host/hostess on​ the food.
