    Smile The most influential is or are

    Hello, Great teachers!!
    Please help me out.
    In the next sentence, which is correct is or are?

    Perhaps the most influential in determining authenticity of souvenirs is /are the meanings that the tourists themselves assign to their merchandise through a process of attribution of meaning.

    Thanks in advance.

    You're referring to 'meanings' so it should be 'are'.

    It's a weak sentence, though.
