Why isn't "and" agus here?

Another one who would like to know the answer to this, please.

How do you know when to use "is" instead of "agus"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rraine7

The "is" in this case is a conjunction, which links two similar words or phrases together into a single phrase. In English conjunctions include: or, but & and.

In Gaelic the conjunctions also include: or (no), but (ach), & and (agus, 's, is)
