A Group of ...

Came across some an interesting MCQ on English in today's The Sunday Times.
Let's see if you get it...

There are collective nouns in English that mean "a group of", more common ones being "A crowd of people", "A flock of birds".

More unique ones like "A brood of chickens".

Let see if you can get these correct:

A group of crocodiles is called:
A) a snap B) a glide C) a float

A group of crows is called:
A) a death B) a murder C) a stone

A group of lions is called:

Answers coming up tomorrow ;)
