Approved answer (verified by Mister Micawber)
evatuckytaAccording to my opinion, the best one is have been, because the the noun is several shootings, so you have to choose the plural form.- i concur
Anonymous:there have been several shooting last night
because there is a there in the begining of a sentence the verbs follows what comes after i( several shootings )
There have been several shootings overnight.
There were several shootings last night.
Please note that sentences are incorrect if they do not start with a capital and end with appropriate punctuation.
Best wishes, clive

I think 'has been' is right but I am confused. So kindly explain the answer as well.
AnonymousYour training period has been extended / your training period have been extended.You need to use "has been", because "your training period" is singular, and so you need a singular verb.
How about these:
1. Please be advised that these bookings have been/has been amended according to your request.
can anyone please tell me which one is correct and why.
2. Who have/has the sexiest body?
(if incase I am refering to number of people in a photo) ('',?? thanks!
