I'd like to confirm if a sequence of steps is singular or plural. For example, which of the following is correct:

  1. A sequence of steps is performed.
  2. A sequence of steps are performed.
  • 1
    Do what I do. Ignore everything after "of". A sequence is singular. So, the verb is is. – Double U Jan 20 at 4:50
