Hi,

Yes, I never take it seriously.

hey,

a/ A+ B = one. So, I think “is” is correct.A+ B = two. So, I think “are” is correct.

b/ Normally, we say: The good is…The rich are…Besides: the good (UN) + the devil (UN) = Uncountable noun.the rich (CN) + the poor (CN) = Countable noun.

HiSince you are talking about tow things (weather good, devil, rich and poor or any tow or more things), you have sầu to lớn use are. But if you want lớn talk about anyone in specific you can use is, for instance, The poor is a real problem, nowadays.

Upon my poor knowledge, all these words (the good, devil, poor, rich) are uncountable nouns.

Hi Khanh

a/ In fact, A & B are one company.In fact, A và B are two different companies.b/ The good & the devil are…The rich và the poor are…

It’s best to lớn think this way:1 + 1 = 2 … (2 or more = plural!)

One uncountable thing + one uncountable thing = 2 uncountable things = plural

“The good” when used lớn refer khổng lồ people is plural:Only the good die young.

Hi Baraa

The poor is a real problem, nowadays.

In this sentence “poor” is incorrect. Either you can write:The poor are a real problem nowadays. (poor = poor people)-OR-Poverty is a real problem nowadays.

When used lớn refer khổng lồ group of people, the good, the poor, the rich, the evil etc. are all grammatically plural.“The rich live in mansions and drive expensive sầu cars.”

The word devil is singular và countable. “There were three devils at the Halloween tiệc ngọt.”
