The Johnson family have won a vacation
The Johnson family has won a vacation
Which is correct and why?
But if you think of the family as a unit, then use the singular HAS. I'm inclinded to use this one.
Which is correct in the following:
It's important that your account has a correct beneficiary designation.
It's important that your account have a correct beneficiary designation.
I would prefer your second sentence, but both are grammatically correct.
Sentence 1 uses the present indicative of the verb have.
Sentence 2 uses the subjunctive form of have.
Anonymous:Can someone tell me which sentence is grammatically correct?

This challenge instilled in me an innate purpose and vision that has been the driving force behind my career progression.
I'd say "purpose and vision" are intended to be viewed as a unit, and that would justify the use of "has". That said, I'd also say you could reword the sentence this way:
- This challenge instilled in me an innate sense of purpose and vision which has been the driving force behind my career progression.
People are waiting to help.
