Why There is toi et elle devez prendre une décision.?
This relates to:Using stress pronouns in compound subjects and objects (unlike English) -

again, this is a case of stress pronouns. "Toi" is the stress pronoun for "tu" and "elle" is the same as personal and stress pronoun.
You and her -- Toi et elle
you and him -- Toi et lui
She and them -- Elle et eux
-- Chris (not a native speaker).

Bonjour Shruti !
Same case here as previously.While in English, you could nowadays use colloquially either you/she or you/her in subject groups, in French, you can only use the stress pronouns toi/elle.

Bonne journée !
