How? explain please.

How anyone explain?

Mohsin said: (Aug 25, 2011)  
As "will" shows it is in future tense, so "has" is used.

Kishore said: (Sep 11, 2011)  
Any way had will not come, Since if it is had the end will be as "he would have called" and also same about would have and would have had. Also the tense is future perfect.

What will be the sentence if we have to change 'will call'?

Jaya Phoolwani said: (May 26, 2014)  
The answer should be 'A' how can it be Has? It seems incorrect.

Would have is best suited here? why only has?

Acc. To english grammar rules if the 2nd tense shows any future action then the 1st must be in present tense. So' has' is the best option among all others I think so.

Gladis said: (Dec 5, 2015)  
It is present tense, so the answer becomes has.

Mukesh said: (Jul 26, 2016)  
I think "has" is correct because here is present perfect tense.

Yash said: (Aug 24, 2016)  
Please explain the answer properly.

Sentence structure: If + Simple present tense. Future simple tense.

Jagan said: (Sep 14, 2016)  
I think "if" should use in future or past tense, but how come used in present tense. I think A is correct.

Kaveri said: (Oct 31, 2016)  
It is not an imaginary sentence, so HAS is the correct answer because 2nd part is in future.

Ishvar Meena said: (Jun 25, 2017)  
Here has is used as a main verb.

This is a conditional sentence. When two actions happen 2nd sentence depend on 1st sentence then present indefinite is used because both sentences is in the future.
