    Can the word "money" be both singular and plural?

    We might say: "My CLASS did well. THEY all received good marks." In which case, the word "class" might stand for both "it" and "they" (i.e., singular and plural). Can we use the word "money" in the same way without changing "it" into "moneys"?

    No, you can't say "Money are ..." or "I earned some money. They are on the table".
    It's singular.
