I concede that the pluperfect is the same as the past perfect, but most Americans prefer the latter.

Quoting this article, English has three perfect tenses:
present perfect
past perfect
future perfect

It looks like Lee Ying has already received the help he needs, thanks to you.

I will have been given
John will have been seen
Passive:
I will have been given (I shall have been given) = habré sido dado
John will have been seen (John shall have been seen) = Juán habrá sido visto

Active:
I will have given = habré dado
John will have seen = Juán habrá visto

I guess that you are asking me if it should to be masculine gender or female, really it's indifferent, you can use that word with both genders as question.

@Suavemente: "pregunta" is a feminin, but "cualquiera", for euphony reasons, becomes "cualquier" before a noun. However, your question should have rather been "¿Tiene usted alguna pregunta?"
