    Correct Answer
    C. Are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" because when using the pronouns "you" and "I" as the subject of a sentence, the verb that follows should be in the plural form. In this case, "are" is the correct form of the verb "to be" to match the subject "you and I."

      Having

    Correct Answer
