    • Corrections:
      If you want to place emphasis on “help”, the sentence is grammatically correct. However, the sentence should simply read: What things help / can help us … In other words, you don’t need any modal auxiliary verb here unless you want to emphasize something. For more information, refer to my reply to Question 3.
      Emotion should be pluralized here to refer to a variety of emotions.

      • hi
        excuse me
        this sentence is simple present and is not present perfect so i thick helping verb should be dose no has because has is main verb
        and also appearance question is simple present so we should use dose and no has

        • ✅ Thank you for raising this question and looking at this grammatical point critically.
          This interrogative sentence starts with a WH-question element, which is “which country” here, and “country” plays the role of the “subject” and not the “object” of the sentence. For this reason, you should not use any modal auxiliary verb. Consider the following examples:
          Which country does your passport include? (country as the object of the sentence, so you should use a modal auxiliary verb – the principal verb is “have”)
          Which country has the highest level of EQ? (country as the subject of the sentence. So, no modal auxiliary is needed – the principal verb is “have”.)
          Another example:
          How many people died in the accident? (people as the subject of the sentence, no modal auxiliary)
          How many people did you see in the accident? (people as the object of the sentence, modal auxiliary verb is required)
