Yes. To help clarify:
he, she, it does
you all do
Does he know? Does your sister know? Does the boss know? Does that car cost a lot of money?
Use do when it's a matter of more than one person or thing.
Do they know? Do your parents know? Do the other members of the group know? Do those cars cost a lot of money?
Anonymous:Great answer and examples. Thanks!
Anonymous:you use do if it is plural and for first person like I,
you use does if it is singular like - It,
in the phrase do your parents know? parents here have s, it is plural, so you will use do.
Does your parent know? parent doesnt have s and it is singular, so you will use does.
But in this phrase DO is PREFERABLE or much acceptable.
Anonymous:Use "do" when talking about more than one of something. Use "does" when talking about just one of something. For example, "Does Mom go shopping?" versus "Do Mom and Dad go shopping?"
Anonymous:This is correct except you would use "DO" with the subjects "I" and "You" which are singular.
Anonymous:Use does in the third person singular.... he she or it does
Anonymous:" One does not compare Nutella " which one is the subject and the rest of it are???.....
