• Where have everybody/everyone gone to?
  • Have anybody/anyone ever told her the truth?

Are these valid usages, idiomatic?


It should be "has" in each case. (My personal bias is not to use the / in the examples, so I will split them.)

  • Where has everyone gone to?
  • Where has everybody gone to?
  • Has anyone ever told her the truth?
  • Has anybody ever told her the truth?

In each case, the "one" or "body" word is a pronoun, and singular.
