Usage Note regarding the Â´familyÂ´ questions: In American usage, a collective noun takes a singular verb when it refers to the collection considered as a whole, as in: The family was united on this question. The enemy is suing for peace. It takes a plural verb when it refers to the members of the group considered as individuals, as in: My family are always fighting among themselves. The enemy were showing up in groups of three or four to turn in their weapons. In British usage, however, collective nouns are more often treated as plurals. Depending on your class and curriculum, you might want to adapt or replace this question.
