    her or she?

    Is it ok to say "Do she and her husband study well? or "Do her and her husband study well?" Which is right?
    Can a teacher answer, please? Thanks

    Re: her or she?

    just a student.
    i think the correct form is "she".
    this question is interesting to me because of the doubt regarding the usage of "do" and "does".
    if the sentence was about one person only, i'd definitely say that we should use "does".
    but the sentence talks about "they", i.g., "she and her husband" and thus i wonder if "does" is really the right way.
    just a student.
    thanks.
