playing football and hocky is/are [hockey]


Senior Member
Do I need to say "is" or "are"? In my opinion "are" is correct, because playing football and (playing) hocky are two things!
"Playing football and hocky <is/are> prevalent among the young generation in this country."

    I would use "are" because they are two different sports. I might also use popular rather than prevalent, but I'll leave that to you. It's hockey, by the way.
