There are a lot of answers about has/have but I couldn't find one that answers my question.

Which one is correct ?

Window size or position has been modified

Window size or position have been modified

I guess that if the or was exclusive I should use has. But there, the window size and position can be both modified at the same time.

Thank you.


In this case, you would take the "maximum". Just like math, you can develop -> size, position, size and position.

As there is a possible 'and' (plural), this is the correct grammar:

have been modified
