Vincent TeoThanks your reply. My friends said, we must use "has also", but not "also has". Does he correct?
Is he correct? I already gave you the correct answer, VT. If have, has or had is the only verb, also is before it:

I also have news for you.
He also has a new car.
They also had something to say.


If the clause is in the perfect or past perfect, also is after the auxiliary:

I have also had problems with it.
He has also seen that movie.
They had also been abroad.

Hi VT

Neither. Also comes before has because has is the only verb and size (= big) comes before the colour:

It also has big red flowers.

I don't know what it refers to. It might make more sense to change it:
She also has big red flowers.

Cheers
