I am facing some issues with ArcGIS 10. When I merge to polygons either of the one or both the polygons gets deleted. I tried this on multiple shapefiles and also on geodatabase, but still getting the same result. this polygons were created as kml on Google Earth and the converted from kml to layer in ArcMap. Projection of both are same. Below are the screenshots of the merging process for reference.


1. Selected one polygon:
