Countable and Uncountable nouns: 

Nouns can be either countable or uncountable.

Countable nouns (or count nouns) are those that refer to something that can be counted.

They have both singular and plural forms (e.g. cat/cats; woman/women; country/countries).

Collective Nouns 

Collective nouns are names for a group of individuals or a number of animals, places, things,

objects, concepts or ideas, (e.g. a pack of cards, a board of directors).

Subject Verb Agreement :

Simply means the subject and verb must agree in number.

This means both need to be singular or both

In the quote added to the illustration, taken from the movie, does the Subject Agree with the Verb ?

What is the Agreement Rule for Countable, Uncountable Nouns, and Collective Nouns?
