    are/is

    Hi there,



    The weather in Taiwan and the weather in Canada "is" very different.


    1.Is it right to use "is"?

    2.Or "is" should be replaced by "are".

    3.Or we can use either of them? What is the difference between these two?


    thank you

    Re: are/is

    As you have itemised them, I'd use the plural.
