Student or Learner
Just a simple question. One and a half apples are/is on the table. Which is right? "is" or "are"?
p.s. Just now I looked it up in the dictionary, and found the following two sentences:
One and a half hours are allowed for the exam. An hour and a half is allowed for the exam.
Why? one uses "is", while the other uses "are"? Who can help me?

What about the first sentence I showed? Can it be "one and a half apples is on the table."?
