    Thomas has Tom as his servant.

    "Thomas has Tom as his servant. Who also does Thomas's household works."

    Please check.

    Re: Thomas has Tom as his servant.

    I'm afraid it makes no sense at all. The first part should probably be "Tom is Thomas' servant" or "Thomas has a servant called Tom". However, the part after the full stop is not a complete sentence and I don't know what "does Thomas' household works" means.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    By household works I meant the works that we do daily at home like washing cloths, sweeping, mopping etc.

    Re: Thomas has Tom as his servant.

    That's called "housework" in BrE. I think it comes under the term "household chores" in AmE.

    Do you mean "Tom is Thomas' servant. Tom is also responsible for the housework"?

    It's housework over here, too.
    I am not a teacher.
