    Re: which is correct?

    Welcome to the forums.

    We don't give out free homework answers, but here's a clue:

    Would you say 'The boys is playing on the ground' or 'The boys are playing on the ground'.

    I would say "The boys are playing on the ground"

    So, I came to know "Neil and Joel are playing on the ground" is the correct sentence.

    Thank You for your reply!

    I have another one doubt. Can I ask "How is Neil and Joel?"

    Re: which is correct?

    You need to apply the same logic.
    How is the boys?
    How are the boys?

    Which one?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
