    ask concord

    I like to check,

    1) The father, together with his two year old son , is building a sandcastle.

    2) The two girls , together with their brother, is or are coming with us.

    I have read
    When a singular subject is joined to other subjects using "together with " , singular verb is used.

    no. 1) correct
    but
    no. 2) is or are ?

    Yes When a singular subject is joined to other subjects using "together with " , a singular verb is used.
    Likewise, When a plural subject is joined to other subjects using "together with ", a plural verb is used.
    'girls' is plural, so the plural verb 'are' would be used.
