    1. A group of reporters was / were at the reception yesterday. They were there to interview the singer.

    2. The class is / are getting ready for recess. They are queuing up now.

    A group was (because the group is a single entity made up of two or more lements).

    The class is (for the exact same reason).

    Transversely;

    the reporter is . . . .
    the reporters are . . . .
    the groups are . . . .
    the classes are . . . .
    the student is . . . .
    the students are . . . .
