These look good

This phrase is correct and commonly used in English.

Use 'these look good' when referring to multiple items or things that appear favorable or appealing.

Examples:

  • These look good on you.
  • These look good together.
  • These look good enough to eat.
  • I think these look good on the menu.
  • These look good in the store.

These looks good

This phrase is incorrect in English. The verb 'looks' does not agree with the plural subject 'these.'


Alternatives:

  • these look good
  • this looks good
  • that looks good
  • these appear good
  • these seem good
The correct phrase is 'these look good.' The subject 'these' is plural, so it should be followed by the plural form of the verb 'look.' 'Looks' is the singular form of the verb, which does not agree with the plural subject.
