Simple sentence with compound subject:
Jack and Jill ran up the hill.
Compound subject = Jack, Jill
Verb = ran
The verb is the verb, no matter if it's a single or a compound subject.
If the VERB is compound, the same rule applies.
The dog and the boy RAN and PLAYED.
DOG, BOY - compound subject
RAN, PLAYED - compound verb.
