    doesn't and don't

    A missed letter in a word and an extra word don't really count?

    A missed letter in a word and an extra word doesn't really count" ?

    I say the latter is correct. What is the rule behind this?

    Thanks.

    The first one uses a plural verb, which goes with the two subjects: a missed letter and an extra word.

    Why are the sentences given question marks?

    Why do you think that the second one is the best choice, Unreg?
