so did i. but here's what my book says:
'collective nouns can be either singular or plural. if they refer to a group as a unit, they are singular. if they refer to the individuals within the group, they are plural.

the audience gives their attention to the speaker.
This one is a matter of perception. You may see individual audience members applauding. I see the audience as whole applauding because I can't hear any indivuals clapping their hands.
