I want to know which usage is correct: Software tools have no supports for ... or Software tools has no supports for ...?

And why?

  • This is a simple singular/plural issue. "Has" is used with singular, "have" with plural. "Tools" is plural. "Tool" is singular.

It should be Software tools have no support for. Because Software tools is plural, you need have instead of has. On the other hand, support is usually an uncountable noun, and therefore is never plural, except in the case of "something that serves as a foundation, prop, brace, or stay"
