OA is "C"
Is this usage "There are a X and Y" correct?
Any examples/references?

Pb, I think the confusion arises here because the verb (are) is before the subject rather than after. In such sentences it is a good idea to reverse the sentence and see what verb you will use and use that verb in the original sentence.

'There are a cat and a dog in my house' is correct,

just to make sure, you can reverse it

A cat and a dog are/is there in my house

are is the correct choice as we are talking about a subject with an and in it.
So, you need to use are in the original sentence.
