    Or should it be "has to be"?
    Which do you think should come after a plural verb - "has" or "have"?

    2: I have requested to Mr.Ali or i have requested Mr.Ali.
    Neither one is a complete sentence. Please give us full sentences to consider. Remember to put a space after a full stop.

    3: Can we say "Your were supposed to be reached on time"?
    No, we can't. It's completely incorrect. What are you trying to say?

    Can I replace it with "should have reached"?
    What does "it" refer to? Please tell us your revised sentence using "should have reached".
    Note my corrections and comments above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Use of have to be and has to be.

    1: I feel "have" should come after a plural verb. Is it correct?

    2: I have requested to Mr. Ali to collect the material.
    I have requested Mr. Ali to collect the material.

    Should i put "to" in the sentence?

    3: You should have reached on time. Can it be replaced with you were supposed to reach on time?

    I have asked Mr Ali to collect the material.
    I have requested that Mr Ali collect the material.


    Should I put "to" in the sentence? See above. Neither of your sentences was correct.

    3: You should have reached on time.
    Can it be replaced with you were supposed to reach on time?
    Neither is correct.
    You should have arrived on time.
    You should have reached the hotel/hospital/building on time.
    You were supposed to arrive on time.
    You were supposed to arrive at the hotel/hospital/building on time.
    See above.

    In future, please ask unconnected questions in separate threads. It can get confusing doing it your way.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
