I'm confused about what "to be verb" to use when you create a list of items.
I mean when you talk about 3 or 4 items. What "to be verb" goes after "how much"? I read that "how much" always goes with uncountable nouns. So I would use "is" instead of "are"?
- How much is a dictionary, a stapler, and three pairs of scissors?
- How much are a dictionary, a stapler, and three pairs of scissors?
Does it have to do with proximity of the countable noun or uncountable noun?
