Sue Heim writes (in part):

I swear my brain has decided to turn off today. Which of the following
is correct:

...more may be required if a high number of records *is* retrieved
...more may be required if a high number of records *are* retrieved

In my humble opinion, "...more is retrieved."

More sounds like a nown and is a "thing". A thing is, not are.
