    Demonstrative Pronoun Problem

    Is it correct to say:

    "those whose bodies did not create enough.."

    or

    "those whose body did not create enough..."

    I believe that "Those" is a plural demonstrative pronoun in both of these sentences, and so my inclination is that the first sentence would be correct, but I am unsure. Please help! Thank you.

    Yes, "those" is plural; so the first sentence is correct.
