    The council meets on the first and third Tuesday every month. This is the sentence with a collective noun: the council. In the sentence, the council has been considered as a unity, a single group. This is why the verb goes in the third person for the singular. If the council members were considered, the verb would go in the plural. For example, the council are having some coffee at the moment.

    The other sentences do not have collective nouns.
