    Which is Correct?

    The process / processes of adding a question and assigning a score to a question is / are same.
    I mean to say:
    The process of adding a question and the process of assigning a score to a question both are same as they were. i.e. remains the same.

    Re: Which is Correct?

    For me, it's an uncommon sentence construction.
    What about this sentence:
    The process of adding a question or assigning score to a question remains the same.

    According to me, it conveys the same thing but it is possible to read it as implying that either remain the same. The "or" conditional.

    What abt this:
    The process of adding a question and of assigning score to a question has not been changed.

    Btw, I didn't knew Grammar could leave me entangled like this.
