Blue whales and fin whales ( get or gets) to be over 80 feet long. Would the correct answer be get.
You have *two* simple subjects making up a *compound* complete subject. Do you need a *plural* simple verb or a *singular* simple verb?! You might know the simple verb as the simple predicate. The verb with the s is *singular* whereas the verb without the s is *plural.*
Read it aloud and see which one of the two options sounds better.

The correct answer would be "get".
The subject is plural, so the verb must be in base form.
Hope to help,
