As opposed to “as well as” which considers only the first subject, “and” considers both the subjects before and after it ans so the verb usage must be “plural”. So, (i) is correct and (ii) is wrong.

Arun’s “family” is correct as one can have only one family. So, (iv) is correct.

Correct option: B
by
option 1 – 2 entities so are will be used as it is plural.
option 2 – contrast of option A so wrong
option 3 – families, s suffix i.e plural so we can't use is, so wrong
option 4 – family is a singular word, even it is a group of people the word is a singular so is will be used so option 4 is right.

So option 1 and 4
