I suddenly made a "mistake" but I don't know if it's a mistake. So which is correct or they're both right?

  • They are both grammatical. They mean different things. Only one will be applicable to a given context. What’s your context?

  • I mean what does this ticket have

  • Then you want, “What does this ticket include?”

What includes this ticket?

You could ask this, for example, if you were comparing several vacation packages and you wanted to know which package includes a ticket for a particular attraction or excursion.

What does this ticket include?

You would ask this if you wanted to know what attractions, excursions, meals, destinations, etc., are included if you buy a particular ticket.

Another way to ask this is, "What is included on [or with] this ticket?"


Think of the ticket, a document describing something, as a container. it has something in it, something it is about. The ticket includes or contains one or more items.

The ticket is about one or more topics or items. The phrase includes this ticket is about a container of tickets. Your list of tickets includes this ticket.
