Hallo, teachers.

1:Who of the patients has recovered.
2:Which of the patients has recovered.

Which one is the correct sentence?

Hello maqsoodahmedmagsi,

We don't like to answer questions like this as if we start then we end up doing people's homework for them, and we really don't have time to do this!

Perhaps you can tell us which you think is correct and we will tell you if you are right or not.

Best wishes,

Hallo, teachers.

Do you have a pen?
Have you a pen?

What's the difference between them?

Hello maqsoodahmedmagsi,

We don't usually form questions with 'have' by inversion unless 'have' is an auxiliary verb. Here, 'have' is the main verb, and so the first version is correct.

In the past the second form was used, but it is not st

Hello

There are two right ways of saying that you have a pen.
1. I have a pen.
2. I have got a pen.

Note, that "have got" is more popular in British English.

You can create a question from this statements in two ways:
1. Do you have a pen?
2. Have you got a pen?

These two questions are grammatically correct. "Have you a pen?" is incorrect, although I imagine everyone would understand what you mean if you asked.

I hope it helps.

Thanks for your comment.

it is such a programm to read books , yes, it can encourage or (endeavour) the creativity by stimulating the powerness of imagination ?

whas that sentence right ?
thanks a lot for your website, B.C. !

Hello catphilppa,

We're glad you find our site useful! I'm afraid we simply don't have the time to correct users' writing, but I'll point out a couple of errors in this sentence. First, 'endeavour' doesn't make sense, so I'd recommend not using it. Then I'd recommend you look up a few words (e.g. 'programm' and 'powerness') in the dictionary to check them.
