The exercise: “Fill out the bracket with is or are.”
There ( ) uncle Jim and brother Jack.
The answer given is “are”. But I think it should be “is” according to the grammer book.
I think the difference is between singular and plural subjects – you’d say “there is Jim” and “there is brother Jack”, but “there are Jim and Jack” because you’re referring to two subjects (people).
