We learned the use of has in a sentence to ask a question about the completed action in the previous lesson. We have seen that we can use has with only the noun of the third-person singular number to show the completed action in the present tense.

Construction of an affirmative answer using ‘has’

The structure of an affirmative answer is as follows:

  • Yes, + subject (he/she/it/any other singular noun) + has + past participle of the main verb+ other words + full stop (.)

Formation of short answers using ‘has’

When a question is asked, short answers are most commonly used.

So, the formation of a short affirmative answer is as follows:

  • Yes, + subject (he/she/it/any other singular noun) + has + full stop (.)
