    Post "Is" or "Are"

    Is the following sentence correct?

    "Meeting on 25 or 26 Aug is fine with me."

    Should I use "is" or "are" when "or" is used in the sentence?

    And how about this one?

    "Meeting on 25 and 26 Aug is fine with me."

    Is it alright?

    Thank you very much.

    Re: "Is" or "Are"

    Wouldn't it be:
    "A meeting on the 25th or 26th is fine with me." - You see there is only one meeting which is movable on these two dates.

    "Meetings on the 25th and 26th are fine with me." - Apparently, there are two meetings mentioned in this sentence.
