When I asked why not the classes has started, one of my friend suggested a correction: "have started"

My question is: which one is correct?


"Classes" is a plural noun. The verb must also take a plural form to agree with the noun.

One class has started.

Two classes have started.


The present simple of the verb have goes like this:

I have
you have
he/she/it has

we have
you have
they have

You will notice that the only case of has is third person singular- he/she/it has.

classes is plural, so the correct verb case is have.
