Hi there, I have a quick question regarding subject verb agreement. Which verb should be used in this case- 'is' or 'are'? A good academic profile and an intermediate level of German (2 years of German studies) is/are required.'
Thanks in advance for your help grammarphiles!

The "and" makes it conjunctive, therefore the plural verb "are" is required.

Had the disjunctive "or" been used instead, the singular "is" would be correct.
