"La clase tiene ocho estudiantes."
Translation:The class has eight students.
Still have not had a reply as to why when I get a question where I have to speak the answer the system immediately marks me wrong!! I do not touch anything at allbut it still decides I am incorrect It really is infuriating!!!
I do not know, Why they use " has" in this sentece?; the class has eight students and however they use "have" in "Does the university have three libraries?"
In the statement "The class has eight students," has is used because the subject class is considered 3rd person singular.
He, she, it (the class) has
In the question "Does the university have three libraries?" the rules are a little different. Even though "the university" is also 3rd person singular, that is reflected in the use of "does" (the auxiliary verb). The main verb (have) then does not change.
Do I have ...?
Do you have ...?
Does he, she, it (the university) have ...?
Do we have ...?
Do they have ...?
