Subject/verb agreement in a sentence

 
 
Reply Thu 28 Feb, 2019 08:41 am
I am writing an internal memo at my company. I have a situation where I am unsure of the correct verb. Here is the sentence:

"One of the current challenges that [company] is closely following are potential implications of ..."

Is that correct? Or should it be:

"One of the current challenges that [company] is closely following is potential implications of ..."

"One of the current challenges" is singular, but "implications" is plural. Both sound correct, but both also sound slightly amiss. Any help?

@lytleric,
Go with "is" as it ties to "one".

@lytleric,
You don't follow a challenge, you deal with a challenge. You can also monitor future developments as to deal with a challenge when it arises.

You can also confront a challenge, face a challenge or even take it on.
