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?
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.
People are waiting to help.
