    is/are

    1)...one of the reasons IS / ARE climatic changes....

    Which one is correct? Is or are?

    2) Most of them ARE / IS there.

    <= I can never recognize a subject in sentences like these... Is the subject one (most) or climatic changes/reasons (they)?

    Re: is/are

    Take this example:

    One of them is Peter.

    Most of them means Peter and some others.

    So most of them are good guys.
