I'd like to ask if you'd use there is or there are when naming an object in the first place and more than one different objects in the second place. For example:
"There is one table and two chairs" or "There are one table and two chairs"?. I would choose the first one because the single object is in the first place, since if it were the other around I'd say "There are two chairs and a table".
Maybe is a very basic question, but nobody I've asked seems to have a clear answer.
