Why is the new growth on ZZ plant brown and dying
I’ve had this plant a few months and it has grown new shoots. The new shoots are a tad leggy and the leaves at the very top are brown and dead.

This appears to have two causes. The plant is getting leggy in response to a lack of light. Even though it can handle lower light, there is a lower limit. This will need just a little more to be happy.
The browning could be something a little more sinister, though.
This is often caused from fungal infections, caused by overwatering. This will need to be fixed with a fungicide. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm
