When writing an email should I write "These details belongs to my dad" or "These are my dad's details"? I know this sounds somewhat silly but I want to be grammatically correct.

    This is the comment I provided to the same question that was asked at EL&U: "Both sentences could [mean] the same thing. (Although it should be belong.) It depends on what you mean. If details means contact information, then the second sentence is much better. (Despite the fact that the most idiomatic would simply be this is my dad's contact information." – Jason Bassford Jul 19 '19 at 5:55

Both are grammatically correct and it's up to you what you choose to use.

I personally would feel more comfortable with the second option, i.e. "These are my dad's details"
