comment “A variety of X is” vs. “a variety of X are”
You're right, and I found a more clear explanation for this particular case: When the word number itself is the subject it is a safe rule to treat it as singular when it has a definite article and as plural when it has an indefinite. So: "The number of people present was large", but "A large number of people were present".

comment What does the noun “lucker” mean?
I suppose that this is a term used to refer to a person who is really lucky, for example in a contest, in a raffle, in a game and wins a prize even if he/she has no great abilities. I have found an example: A: hey I won a ipod! B: you're such a Lucker! A: I know I am. This is doubtless a fluke.

comment Name for a new “ad” entry encompassing buyer requests and supplier offers
I have proposed "record" because in the context of a particular database and of the entry of a row into a table, a "record" is specifically a technical term which is widely used.
