Does both kidneys work together.

Do both kidneys work together.

Are both sentences correct?


Only the second sentence has correct subject/verb agreement.

Here are some examples:

  1. Do the oranges smell nice?

  2. Does that orange smell nice?

  3. Do Americans like tennis?

  4. Does he like tennis?

  5. Does her kidney work?

  6. Do both kidneys work together?

  7. Does each kidney work?

The last example is tricky. In this sentence the "each" implies that we are focusing on one kidney at a time, so the sentence could be interpreted: Does the first kidney work? Yes. Does the second kidney work? Yes.
