1. The Canary Islands in the Pacific are named after what animal? 2. The Canary Islands is charged by its volcanic screening. 3. The Canary Islands are one of the most popular destinations in Spain. 4. The Philippines are surrounded by American warships.

Q: In the above three sentences, some used 'is' and some used 'are'. What is the reason?

    I corrected the sentence number 2. I don't know why, but the sentence suddenly changed.
    2. The Canary Islands is characterised by its volcanic scenery.
