  1. I know did you have is the correct one; but I wonder why “have you had2 is wrong. Can you explain please?

    1. Because there is a specific time reference “yesterday” which doesn’t work with the present perfect.

    1. Did you have fish and chips for lunch yesterday? Forma verbale simple past che in forma interrogativa aggiunge l’ausiliare al passato .

      1. Exactly, Manuela.
        Very often students think that the verb “have” is an exception and that “did” isn’t necessary.
