a. Why is (2) incorrect?

I don't know. What does it mean, she has had? It doesn't make sense to me.

1. She's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen. This means that she has a beautiful smile or her smile is beautiful.

3. She gets the most beautiful smile I've ever seen. This would be correct if you want to say that when she enters a room everyone smiles at her.

c. She's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen. = She has got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen. Right? Correct

d. She's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen. =She has the most beautiful smile I've ever seen. Right? Correct

If yes (if so), why doesn't She's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen mean She's had the most beautiful smile I've ever seen ?

She's had = she has had. There's no justification for using this verb tense. If it's past then it would be simply: She had the most beautiful smile I've ever seen. And this would be correct.

Hi Quoc

Have got is a two-word verb that means the same thing as have (when referring to possession -- see link).

This should not be confused with the present perfect tense of have (in British English).
In American English it's harder to confuse the two since the past participle of get is gotten.
