    Who is coming? or who are coming?

    When you know many people are coming to a party but don't know who, do you ask like, "Who's coming?" or "Who are coming?"

    Re: Who is coming? or who are coming?

    We generally use "is" with "who."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
