ESL/EFL Test #251 "Polite Indirect Questions & Statements Test (1)", answer 7

Have you any idea where Laurie is? I've been looking for her all morning.

Correct answer: (a) Have you

Your answer was: correct
_________________________

I believe this sentence is wrong because the main verb here would have to be "get" and so the correct phrase would be:

Have you got any idea where Laurie is? I've been looking for her all morning.

Hi,

The sentence is acceptable. Have you got? often suggests possession as in:

Have you got your passport with you?
