    What animal do your sons like? / What is your sons' favorite animal?

    Hello.

    Are these two sentences below OK?

    1. What animal do your sons like?
    2. What is your sons' favorite animal?

    I think the noun 'animal' should be pluralized:

    1. What animals do your sons like?
    2. What are your sons' favorite animals?

    Thank you.

    If there is more than one son, I agree.

    Or more than one animal.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
