Hi Teachers

I want to get a correct perspective of Native Speakers here at these:
He and She are going out together  OR He and She is going out together
None of them is capable of making the exact statue  OR None of them are capable of making the exact statue
Aren't I good ?  OR  Am I not good?
Where is he and she? OR  Where are he and she?
 You and She are identical   OR You and She is identical 
You or They are going to do it    OR  You or They is going to do it 
 Neither of you are going to see  OR  Neither of you is going to see
Neither he or she are going to see  OR  Neither he or she is going to see 
Either you or them is coming back OR  Either you or them are coming back
Which ones are grammatical ?

Thanks

I want to get a correct perspective of Native Speakers here at these:
He and she are going out together OR He and She is going out together
None of them is capable of making the exact statue OR None of them are capable of making the exact statue
Aren't I good ? OR Am I not good? Both acceptable

Where is he and she? OR Where are he and she? Neither >> Where are they?

You and she are identical OR You and She is identical
You or they are going to do it OR You or They is going to do it
Neither of you are going to see OR Neither of you is going to see
Neither he or she are going to see OR Neither he or she is going to see
Either you or they is coming back OR Either you or they are coming back
Which ones are grammatical ?

Thanks

 Hi check these please: 
Neither you nor he is giving me present
(do we use singular verb with "neither" or plural verb with "neither"?  Are we supposed to follow the second subject (HE) to determine the "to be" (is) or is it as long as there's one plural subject in it, it must use plural verb ? )
You or he is confronting them
(do we use singular verb or plural verb with "OR"? Are we supposed to follow the second subject (HE) to determine the "to be" (is) or is it as long as there's one plural subject in it, it must use plural verb ? )
For "either" do we use singular verb or plural verb?

Hi,
your questions are all difficult questions, because some of them might sound very odd, and native speakers either say those things another way, or don't follow fixed rules (let alone prescriptive grammar).
I can only give you some examples. Here's what I would say:

Neither he nor she are going (or sometimes also "is").
Neither of you are going.
You and her are identical. <-- I don't know why I'd like to use "her".
Either you or them is/are going <-- both, but I don't know why I think I would tend to say "is"
etc.

I'm afraid none of them are ok according to prescriptive grammar, but I'm not going to talk weird and say "With whom have you spoken?" instead of "Who did you talk with?" or "Watcha waitin for?".
Emotion: smile
And I'm not a native speaker, by the way.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
He and She are going out together. (compound, thus plural, subject)
None of them is capable of making the exact statue. ('none' is the subject, and it is always singular)
Aren't I good ? OR Am I not good? (the second follows the rules but sounds very formal with the uncontracted 'not'. "amn't' or 'ain't' sound bad to most ears and 'amn't' is just hard to say, so almost everyone instinctively uses 'aren't'.)
Where are he and she? (again, a compound subject; most people would use 'they')
You and She are identical. (compound subject).
You or They are going to do it. (neither 'you' nor 'they' takes 'is' so i have no idea why anyone would think 'is' would be correct.)
Neither of you is going to see. (the subject is an implied 'one', "neither one of you").
Neither he or she is going to see. (but it should be 'nor' not 'or': neither . . . nor.
Either you or them are coming back (but it should be 'they', 'them' is accusative.)
correct statement is as below:

He and She is going out together
None of them is capable of making the exact statue
Anonymouscorrect statement is as below:

He and She is going out together
None of them is capable of making the exact statue

I disagree.
