You say, "Who is in the room?" even though you know there are a lot of people there. Not "Who are in the room?"

Now, suppose somebody says to you "Come with me! I've seen a bunch of drinks on the table. We are thirsty." You know there are a lot of kinds of drinks there. How would you respond, "What is on the table?" or "What are on the table?"?

Many thanks in advance.
