Please could someone help to understand this I read online?
Thanks for any reply.
5. The words ‘many, neither, many a, each, everyone, every
etc... .’ require only singular verbs.
Example-1: Many a students is standing in the canteen.
I can't understand many a students. If we say many students then are not is!
Why not many a student ... Does many here means Each? Then why the indefinite article a?
What is the meaning of any here?

Many a students is standing in the canteen. should be: Many a student is standing in the canteen.
It means 'a large number of...' and the verb is singular.
