Bonjour Madame,

In the sentence 'Paul et Hélène sont mes amis.'

The question for this would be-

OR

2.Qui sont tes amis?

Pls guide which one of the following is correct and what is the rule behind it ?

Hi Varsha, 

The correct question would be :

Qui sont tes amis?

the verb 'être' (to be) having to agree with 'amis' (friends) which is plural ...

Hope this helps!
