    counting something and it's condition

    I've written such sentence one day, and questioned.
    "This item and it's price are very attractive to me."
    Can I count something and exact same thing's condition as plural, can't I? Or is it collectively single?

    dear Nanatuha

    as you yourself mentioned in your post, you've used AND in your sentence, and that's why your sentence is gramatically correct .You should use PLURAL verb, as you did

    Hello Nanatuha

    As Matilda says, it's fine; but you need to change the it's to its:

    1. "This item and its price are very attractive to me."

    Uh-oh, I've mixed them up. Thanks for pointing out.
