“Is” and “are” are both forms of the verb “to be,” but they are used in different ways.

“Is” is the singular form of the verb “to be.” It is used to describe a single person, place, or thing. For example:

  • She is a doctor.
  • The cat is sleeping.
  • This is my book.

“Are” is the plural form of the verb “to be.” It is used to describe more than one person, place, or thing. For example:

  • They are doctors.
  • The cats are sleeping.
  • These are my books.

In general, you use “is” with singular subjects and “are” with plural subjects. Here’s a simple way to remember the difference: “Is” has an “s” in it, and “s” stands for “singular.” “Are” does not have an “s” in it, and “plural” does not contain an “s.”
