    The quality and level of his activities prove/proves his capabilities

    Hello.

    Sorry if this question is trivial. I think using the plural form is correct in the sentence below and I want to make sure.

    "The quality and level of his activities prove/proves his capabilities."

    Thanks.

    Note that the reason for the plural is not "his activities" but "The quality and level".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
