    These two things are the key/keys to success

    Would the correct sentence be:

    "These two things are the KEY to success"

    OR

    "These two things are the KEYS to success"

    Or would both be OK and why?

    Thanks.

    Re: These two things are the key/keys to success

    Number 2 is the logically correct one because of the plural; things -- keys. But Number 1 would be understood.
    Perhaps using the word together in number 1 would make its meaning clear, if that is what is meant.
