We know, of course, that collective nouns are not treated the same in BrE and AmE. In American English, collective nouns are always singular, and in British English collective nouns can be either plural or singular.
Such as: Forest, crowd, cattle, audience, group, class, family,...etc.
My question is how to use it with numbers?
A family of two (THAT'S OK)
Could you please check which ones are fine?
Groups of 4,
Lots of family,
Lots of families.
For example: There are lots of class/ classes in that school.
There are 2 group/ groups.
Thanks for the answer. As you have said 'lots of family ispossible, lots of families is OK.Can we construct a sentence like that?
There are/is lots of family in her race.
I just wanted to learn if it is grammatically correct or not.
There are lots of classes in that school. (THAT'S OK)There is lots of class in that school. (IS THAT OK?)
And the American version of these is exactly the same as Bhai describes.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
