    singular or plural ????

    Hello

    His demeanour and his clear evidence do not suggest exaggeration in the normal course that one would have expected.

    Do or does in this sentence?

    thank you

    The sentence itself doesn't make any sense, but as far as your question goes, DO is the correct word. There are two things which together DO NOT suggest exaggeration. Two things = they = plural.
