    2 : "What's the password and the authentication code?" OR "What are the password and the authentication code?" Which one is correct? You'll hear both. "Are" is better grammar.

    3 : "Which other administrator is your friend?" Correct it, please. Again, I
    'm not sure what you mean. If your speaking to someone who has a friend who is an administrator, you know there is one other administrator friend, and what to find out whom it is, this is right. If not, you might mean to say:

    What other administrators are your friends?
    Which administrators are your friends?
    Hope that helps.
