    Wink any murder(s) has

    Are both the sentences correct?

    1- I don't think any murder has shaken me this much before.

    2- I don't think any murders have shaken me this much before.

    Re: any murder(s) has

    They're OK. It would be more natural to write has/have ever shaken me this much.
    I am not a teacher.

    3- You can bring any people you like. with a capital letter at the start. I'd use "anyone", not "any people".
    See above.

    I have deleted your post from 09:33, trying to bump your thread. Please be patient. It had only been two hours since you posted the question. It's the weekend here and some of us like to have some time off!

    Re: any murder(s) has

    For goodness' sake subhajit, stop asking the same question in different threads. You are wasting our time, and your time.

    Ask new questions in a new thread and wait for responses. Once your question has been dealt with, you can post a new question in a new thread. Be patient.

    Sorry sir, I thought it would be ok to ask different questions in different threads. Now I'll ask in the same threads. Sorry for the problems

    That's right. Different questions in different threads.

    Now I'll ask in the same threads. One thread is for one question. When it's finished and your question has been answered, start a new thread for a new question.

    Sorry for the problems.
