    can u help me about how much?

    "how much is a tuna salad and a bottle of wine ?"
    Is this sentence is grammatically or not? do we use "are" instead of "is" in the sentence cos of "and" is combining two objects and makes them plural. Could u pls explain this point a bit if this statement is true.

    Thanks for ur concern

    You are asking about two discrete items, not two combined items, so "is" is correct.
