The milk and juice ____40 dollars.
Should I say " is "or "are "?
I think I should choose are because it means two different food.
Could you please confirm it ?
Thanks a lot!
Contemporary usage accepts both structurally, but the semantic implications may differ: 'is' suggests that the milk and juice are to be considered an indivisible unit whose joint cost is the amount specified. 'Are' - a little unnatural, if grammatically unexceptionable - might be taken as referring to the individual cost of each of the two items (and would therefore probably best be avoided).
