2 is right. When you use “he/she/it” you want to use “has” in the present tense or when we use it as a helping verb.

In English, the third person singular (he/she/it) usually takes a verb that ends in -s.

E.g. He lives with his sister. VS We live with our sister.

“Have” is an irregular verb, and we use “has” when we need the -s ending.


Which one is correct?

He haven't got the keys yet.

He hasn't got the keys yet.

The answer is "He hasn't got the keys yet".

The present tense of the verb "to have":

I have

You have

He/she/it has

We have

You have

They have
