The question is: What days are the first and the second of July? What is correct: - It is a Monday and a Tuesday. or - They are a Monday and a Tuesday.

Thank you for help.


Because your question is asking about the days July 1 and 2, the answer should correspondingly answer regarding the days.


They are a Monday and a Tuesday

is correct.

  • We frequently think about two things together as a single pair. For example, we say: The couple is expected to arrive..... So it would be quite acceptable to say:**It's a Monday and a Tuesday that are proving awkward in your proposed rota.** Here you are considering the two days as a single problem. Equally, you can say:**It's a cat and a dog that I can see in the yard.** – Ronald Sole Jan 19 '18 at 0:13
