    Default Writing an exam

    I'm writing an exam and not sure if my question sounds natural in English.
    "What features of birds does not everyone agree?"
    Thank you in advance.

    It does not.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Not only does it not sound natural, it doesn't make sense.

    Your thread title is not relevant to your question. A better title would have been "What features of birds does everyone not agree?" or something similar.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    No. If you re-read post #4, you will see that I already told you that your title should be "What features of birds does everyone not agree?" The forum guidelines states that a thread title should include some or all of the words/phrases/sentences being queried.
