    Smile Has anyone bought a ticket?

    1. Has anyone bought a ticket?
    2. Did anyone bought a ticket?

    I guess 1 is used when you want to ask them if they still have the ticket.

    2 is just asking about the past. Am i right??


    Thank you.

    No. I think you mean: "Has everyone got a valid ticket?"

    Yes, it's about the past. Note the difference between "anyone" and "everyone".

    Both "Has anyone bought a ticket?" and "Did anyone buy a ticket?" talk about the past.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    For me, no, they don't. They mean the same.
