Logically "is" is correct. "[The sum of] two and two is four." However, "are" is also used. In fact, there is a Sesame Street song: "Two and two are four. Four and four are eight..." http://www.metrolyrics.com/inchworm-sesame-street-version-lyrics-sesame-street.html
I know that, grammatically, it should be "One and four make five", but can we have "makes" too? A lot of people use the singular verb in sentences like this, even though it's technically incorrect. Besides, I always get marked wrong the first time I get this in a lesson and it's driving me slightly crazy. :)
