    Default Do I use 'was' or 'were' in these 2 sentences

    Do I use 'was' or 'were' in these 2 sentences?

    1: My most recent series of events were working with....

    2 : The challenge of producing these events were fulfilling an ambitious brief

    If the person answering can briefly explain why as well that would be great

    Thanks

    In #2, use "was". "the challenge (singular) was"
    I'm not sure what you want to say in #1, it's not clear.
