    Talking 122-variety of way

    Hello all

    Which of these sentences is correct?
    1-there is a great variety of ways…
    2-there are a great variety of ways

    The first one because of A and the second one because of ways?

    .
    Both are possible. #1 is correct because 'variety' is a singular noun; #2 is correct because concord is attracted to the plurality of 'ways'.
