Use of Has, Have, and Had

These all are used to show one’s possession on anything. We use has with singular subjects (he, she, it, Aditya etc.), whereas we apply have with plural subjects (I, you, they, friends etc.).

We can understand it with some examples:

  • He has something to tell us.
  • She has nothing to tell.
  • You have a confidence level.
  • I have a royal car.
  • We have knowledge of English.
  • They have a plan for this weekend.
  • You have my gifted pen.
  • You have a good luck.
  • She has a good friend.
  • He has a talent.
