Kindly let me know whether the verb agrees with the subject in the following sentence. Plz give reasons.
"My guide and guardian have arrived."


If you are talking about two persons, then the verb should be "have."

But sometimes we have more than one "name" for a person: "The teacher and writer is lecturing on her travels," for example. In such cases, we use the singular form of the verb.
