Hey there teachers."Are you happy to live in a family who have pets?"
Is the former statement correct? I came across it in a apllication form.
Shouldn't be"Are you happy to live in a family who has pets?" Or the term "family" is consider a plural because of the memberS it reprsents? Thank you very much!
I agree with bhaisahab´s response, yet in the U.S., family is frequently accompanied by a singular verb form. I prefer with a family rather than in a family.

Americans tend to view collective nouns (family, team, committee, Congress) as singular. Britons as plural.
We say the team is having a good season. The committee is putting out its report.
Very very useful! Many many thx!
Is the question:
Would you be happy living with a family that has pets?
