    What counts as "one description"?

    Hello, everyone.

    I am writing an article about ventilation systems. There are several types that I will have to describe.

    I have to sentences in mind and no idea which one is better.

    # The following is a brief description of the systems.

    # The following are brief description of the systems.

    I'd like to hear your thoughts.

    Many thanks
