#1. My uncle and aunt ………… arriving today.

Sentences starting with a possessive adjective (my, your, our) and having family expressing words connected with “and” (uncle and aunt), we use plural verbs with them.

#2. The Principal and Secretary ………… here to attend the meeting.

If two “singular nouns” connected with “and” and with the first singular noun, we use articles or possessive adjectives (my, your, our), it means we talk about one person, so we use “Singular Verb” with it.
