    Arrow All business and communication is done through computes and the internet

    Hello All,

    Should it be 'is' or 'are'?!
    The reason why I posted this question is that my teacher write the following sentence:
    "All business and communication is done through computers and the Internet, in particular, since the introduction of World Wide Web."
    And: are these sentences correct?!

    I don't agree with Teechar- the singular works too. However, the facts are questionable- people do still write letters and use landlines.

    Thanks. Why didn't you agree with Teechar. Can we use the third form of verb when we use 'and' to add two things together?!
