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?
Go with "is" as it ties to "one".
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.
