when do we use "있나요" in a sentence, and what does it exactly mean?
I see this phrase a lot when people ask questions, and couldn't find the exact definition of this.

* 있나요 : 있 (verb stem of 있다) + 나요 = Do you have something? or Is (Are) there something?
- 있다 ( to exist or to have something)
- 나요 : It is usually used in speech and to make a question. It is only used in an informal setting to a person who is older than you are. It gives a friendly feeling to use -나요.
e.g. ) 민수 씨는 어디에 사나요? ( Where does Minsu live?)
에이미 씨는 남자친구가 있나요? (Does Amy have a boyfriend?)
