I have seen both " look at" and " look to" . Which one is the correct idiom usage?

Thanks

Hit the C.
For construction, conciseness and the appropriateness of the use of "are"

Salut Ugo,

As I made several of such SCs with same outcome, from now I will apply the rule:

"singular noun" of "plural noun" that "plural verbs".

Late as always. "but one of many + plural verb~"

The new Toyota hybrid is but one of many new ultra fuel efficient cars expected to hit the US market in early 2007.

"But" implies that there are many of such hybrids expected to be introduced.

I like your rule, since "that" introduces a "essential modifier" different than "which" for example, it means that we cannot "erase the middleman ie: of y", ie

The actions of my friend are not very wise ( erase "of my friend")

As a general rule of "X of Y" from a Manhattan Gmat prep :
"if you can remove a phrase from the sentence ("of y") , and the sentence still makes sense, the phrase is likely a "middleman"
