I'm confused about which sentence is correct :

what control people's life

and

what controls people's life

I think that the first sentence is correct when we talk about the factors and the second is correct when talking about the one factor

The second phrase is correct.

what controls people's life

The reason is because what is a question/relative pronoun which is always singular. It requires the verb to be in singular as well. So we use 3rd person singular of Present Simple of the verb 'to control', which is 'controls'.
