Hello, could someone help me to choose the right answer?
1. Don't worry, i will inform you if there are/is any news.
"I will inform you if there is any news" is the correct form.

News is an uncountable noun and takes only singular verb in this situation, but if you say :
"There are more pieces of news that I`ve ever read in this paper"..
you can use plural verbs
news + singular
pieces of news/items of news + plural verb
ex. a piece of news[or, news] was/is, etc....
more pieces of news were/are, etc.......
