However, with a plural countable noun the quality meaning is more likely: adequate resources/training/support etc In spoken English people often use do (but not in progressive forms) to talk about something being enough in either of these ways: "Do you have enough money?" "It should do" (=it should be enough). | It's not much but it'll have to do. ) ...
