Suppose, I want to mention what someone is going to do and they have to do more than one, which one is more appropriate between:

[1] What you are going to do is: clean your room, sweep the floor and do the dishes.

[2] What you are going to do are: clean your room, sweep the floor and do the dishes.

    Is "is" singular and are is plural. The 2nd example is better than the 1st one. Oct 27, 2021 at 0:33

It's closer to your first example, but should be:

What you are going to do is clean your room, sweep the floor and do the dishes.
