Likewise, people ask, is you got this grammatically correct?
Strictly speaking, “I got this” is apast-tense construction (as in “I got a new car lastspring”). The technically correct form in reference tothe present would be either “I've got this” or“I have this.”
Beside above, when to use have or have got? When have is being used as a modal verb (orhelper verb), then you cannot use "have got". Whenhave is being used as a main verb, you can replace it with"have got", but only in the present tense.
Also to know is, what is the difference between I have and I got?
While both "I've got and I have got" meanthe same thing there is a distinction between the two."I've got" is more informal. "I have got" is more"proper" . In other words, if you were speaking with aprofessor (or the Queen) you would use "I havegot".
What does I've got you mean?
The meaning depends on the context. In (at leastAmerican) slang, saying "I got you" means either "Iget what you're saying" or "I've got your back". Inchild games of tag, saying "I got you!" means thatyou caught someone.
