Can I ask you that when a thing and a thing (singular noun) or a thing and things (singular noun and plural noun)... followed verb "gustar" like listing, gusta or gustan is right?
1. Me (gusta/gustan) el chocolate y la golosina.
2. Me (gusta/gustan) el chocolate y las golosinas.
3. Me (gusta/gustan) las golosinas y el chocolate.
Thank u so much
There's a bit of subjectivity here; generally, if you start the sentence with the verb (Me gusta/n...) if you have two subjects both in singular, despite having two subjects, it's more common to use the verb in singular:
Me gusta el chocolate y la golosina.
You could use the plural gustan too but the singular is generally preferred. It is as if we omitted the verb before the second element: Me gusta el chocolate y [me gusta] la golosina.
In your 2 and 3 sentences, you have plurals in the subject, so there I'd use the verb in plural:
Me gustan el chocolate y las golosinas.
Me gustan las golosinas y el chocolate.
If you were talking about liking "activities" using infinitives, even when you talk about more than one activity, you'll still see the verb in singular:
Me gusta cocinar y planchar.
Me gusta ver la tele y jugar a videojuegos.
I hope it clarifies it.
