Here under notional concord we consider the relationship between collective nouns and their verbs. A collective noun is a noun used to refer a group of people or thing e.g. committee, team etc.
With collective nouns, the context determines whether the verb is singular or plural. If the noun is taken as a unit. Then the singular verb will be used but if the members in the group are seen as separate. Then, the plural will be used.
