Hi DaniaManla,

I'm afraid there's no way for you to do that. If you made a mistake and want us to know about it, you can post a second comment right after your first one and we should see what you said before we publish your first comment. As long as your message is not confusing, though, we'll answer it -- in other words, mistakes are OK.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Have you got cold ones?
Do you have cold one?
Is the second question is it wrong? because I used to use it.
I noticed the S as well in (Ones) is this must to add?
Thank u

Hello again DaniaManla,

The second question needs to be 'Do you have a cold one?' (or 'Have you got ...') if you are asking about a singular bottle of water or 'Do you have cold ones?' (or 'Have you got ...') if you are asking about more than one bottle of water.

As you can see, we use 'one' for singular and 'ones' for plural. I know that may seem odd, but in this case 'one' is not a number, it is a pronoun -- please follow the link to see a brief explanation of this.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Shop keeper: Is that everything?, means wants to know if no more to shop.

Hi kanani Edson,

Yes, that's right. The shopkeeper is asking if Gemma wants to buy anything else.

All the best,

is that everything

OK, can I have the magazine and do you have a bottle of water?
There are two questions in one phrase.

Here you are ; Have you got a cold ones?

I'm agree

I'm superman, but it's a secret.
