Which one is correct here?
Does anybody have pdf converter? or Does anybody has pdf convertor?
r_dineshHi,The infinitive (have) is always used with do, does and did.
I have, you have, we have, they have, he has.
In normal speech, "anybody" would take the third person singular: If anyone has a converter, could you ...
However, as CB says in the post above yours, once you have a form of "to do" ("Does anybody..."), you use the base form of the verb: have.
He swims. Does he swim?
He has it. Does he have it?
She has one. Did she always have it?
AnonymousI thought that "have" is used when there's no plural: "does anybody have a pdf converter?"You need to review this. You've got the wrong idea about how it works.
anybody is always treated as a singular, and that's the word you have to make agreement with.
It's got nothing to do with converter and converters because those aren't the subjects of the sentence.
does always goes with anybody. And if you are using does, you can't use has with it.
See Have or has.

And when plural, "Does anybody has pdf converters?" I'm confused.
What about this sentence? "Does anybody have/has the lyrics of the song X?" I guess "does anybody has the lyrics of the song X?" is correct.
Is it right?
Thanks in advance.
ALL AND ANYONE CAN BE USED EITHER WITH SINGULAR VERB OR WITH PLURAL VERB.
BUT MOST OF THE TIME IT IS CONSIDERED TO BE SINGULAR SO SINGULAR VERB IS USED FOR IT.
keepsmilingBOTH ALL AND ANYONE CAN BE USED EITHER WITH SINGULAR VERB OR WITH PLURAL VERB.Please don't post in all capitals.
Can you give us some examples of anyone used with a plural verb?
have is often used in interrogative sentences.
that means when you ask a question it comes in the sentence even if it is he/she/it/they/we
Q: Does he have the book?
A: Yes. he has the book
Your sentence being a question then it should take the "have" and NOT the "has" formation
