    Which one is correct?

    Not everyone has good friends

    or

    Not everyone have good friends.

    The first one seems to be the correct one to me, but the negation confuses me. The second one might be the correct one because of the negation in the sentence. Thanks in advance.

    Hello Super Sonic!


    'Everyone' takes a singular verb...so 'everyone has' is correct. The negative 'not' makes no difference to this, except to need a positive verb.
