Which sentence uses a verb that agrees with its compound subject? a. A robin and a sparrow has eaten from the bird feeder. b. Either Mario or Larry are a nominee for the award. c. Either those leftovers or the trashcan are causing that smell. d. Neither my aunts nor my uncles have arrived yet.

The correct answer is C because it is the only option where a verb agrees with its compound subject correctly. In A, it should be 'have eaten', because there are two subjects, 'a robin' and 'a sparrow'. In B it should be 'are nominees', because there are two of them. In D, neither goes with a singular verb.
