    Default Air and water

    Air and water is most essential in our life
    Butter and milk is most essential in our life
    In my knowledge 'are" is the correct but here one grammer book says "is" is the correct. Actually which one is correct

    "Are" is correct.
    How does your grammar book explain that "is" is right?

    PS: Is this the same grammar book you refer to under your "Degree" thread? If so, I'd seriously consider either i) not using it or ii) finding someone who can explain how you're misreading it.
