is jury a singular noun or a plural noun

Dear student,

'Jury' is a collective noun. Whenever a collective noun is treated as a single entity, it is singular: The jury has given its decision. When individual members of the jury are considered, it becomes plural: The jury were asked to sign for their badges. In such cases, it is usually 'The members of the jury were asked to sign for their badges.'

A collective noun can be considered as either singular or plural depending on the sense of the sentence.?If it's too hard to make a decision on singular or plural, precede your collective noun with words like?members of?, forcing you to go plural.
