The original picture is as follows:
The Applicants were requested to clarify its change of stance. The Applicants has provided justification for objections.
Would you please advise whether The applicants "has" or "have"?

The original picture is sentences are as follows:

The Applicants were requested to clarify its change of stance. The Applicants has provided justification for objections.

Would you Please advise tell me whether I should use "The applicants has" or "The applicants have".

Please note my corrections above. Did the original sentences really use a capital "A" at the beginning of "applicants"?

Should be "their" change of stance if plural.
