1. One percent of 100 people is/are attending the meeting.
2. One percent of 1000 people is /are attending the meeting.
What are the answers?
(I think 'is' and 'are' are)
As Gilnetter said, a percentage is a percentage; and as 5jj said, both sentences are unnatural.
So in both sentences is or are correct?
but in sentence (1) 100 people & (2) 1000 and both should (are)
please explain for us.
