One translation correct, or both?

Haben sie alle zehn Geräte? when I translate do you all have ten devices? I get it wrong and should be do they all have ten devices? When I have to choose the right translation from a choice of three, do they all have ten devices is not the only answer, both are correct. I find this difficult to understand, it is contradictory

In German, the formal "you" (Sie) is always capitalized. I think that's the key to this one.
