In English there are a few “tricky” plurals.
1 Some nouns ending in “S” need a verb in the singular
E.g. Is the news good?
Some of these nouns refer to disciplines ( mathematics, physics, logistics, politics, computer studies, etc),
others to diseases ( the mumps, the measles).
2 Some collective nouns have singular forms but are followed by plural verbs.
This means they have singular forms but a plural connotation . For example: police, people, cattle.
E.g. People were queueing up in front of the ticket office
3 Others are the same both in the singular and in the plural . Here are a few: deer , sheep, aircraft, sheep , moose.
