    2. I saw a shoal of herring swimming in the water.
    3. A brood of chickens entered my house. "flock of chickens"
    4. A hail of fire burnt the shop. "A rain of fire" - but this is an unusual concept - it implies that the fire was coming from outside the building.
    5. A stack of rags were on the table. One stack = singular noun = singular verb
    6.I bought a crate of fruits from the market yesterday. "crate of fruit"
