I have forgotten my password, but my browser remembers it
If your browser remembers your password (that is, the password field is automatically populated when you log in to your Google account, and you're able to log in), you should be able to retrieve your password through your browser's password manager.
See the instructions for your browser:
Make sure you go to google.com not google.ext (where ext is from your country).
From there log out from all listed accounts, and on the login windows, choose log in with other account.
This should give you this:
If you don't see the above at this point even, clear your browsercache, temporary internet files and cookies. Then try again.
It looks like this is a known issue, and Google is on top of it.
From the product forums:
We've gotten reports about some users being signed out of their accounts unexpectedly. We're investigating, but not to worry: there is no indication that this is connected to any phishing or account security threats.

Click the signed out account.
You'll see overlaid options to Remove or Sign In; click Remove.
Google found that security questions were not really secure at all as most of the answers can be found with a simple Google search. For example Sarah Palin had her Yahoo! account hacked because someone simply Googled her birthday, ZIP code and where she met her spouse.
Google has completely removed support for security questions and one only had the ...

"Perhaps the ability to sign out of a single account has been removed?"
I am afraid you are correct.
It has nothing to do with the kind of the operating system (Mac, Windows, Linux etc) you use.
It also has nothing to do with the browser you use (being Chrome, FireFox, Safari etc).
It is ALL about the browser you are logged into from.
As per the ...
Google offers quite a few tools to help you keep unwanted persons out of your account, but some of them only work if you activate and use them.

It is certainly possible - I have multiple. I have not found any mention of Google limiting the number of accounts you can create, in fact, Google's documentation mentions ways to sign in to multiple accounts at once.
But if you're doing this for "organizational purposes", there are probably better ways to achieve your goal. Using multiple accounts will ...

Sign out of your account in that tab.
Click the blue sign in button in the upper right corner.
This will bring up all accounts on your computer and there will be an add account option on the bottom left or a delete account option on the bottom right.
Google unified the account management system for almost all their products. One of the results of this integration is that the top bar has the same buttons on the top right corner, including the profile photo.
The current profile photo and the old ones could be seen on a "system" album called "Profile photos" which could be found in the Photos tab of Google+...

Since this problem is 7 years old, for any people looking for the correct answer, please understand that there are some glaring problems with what the original poster has asked here:

To create a new Gmail account, you should not be logging into Google. You can just go here and create a new Google account.
Authenticator works even when you don't have any sort of network available for your smartphone.
I don't know about your mobile provider, but I don't trust mine to deliver SMS messages in anything that resembles a timely manner.
Beyond that, it is more secure, as you've noted.
You really can't stop them from trying but you can make your account more secure. For GMail / Google account I would setup the 2 step authentication. The 2 step process links your smartphone to your account so when you log in and get through, google will also send you a pin to your smartphone from which you will then verify. Much more secure.
A trick I use is to define a bookmark in my bookmarks bar for each of my various Google services. From my experience, Google services enumerate the user account in the URL, so https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox will take you to account 0's inbox, https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/#inbox to account 1's and so on. The trick is that you have to sign into ...
I was able to work around this by turning on 2-step verification, setting up app passwords, then turning 2-step verification back off. When you turn it off, it asks if you want to clear verification data. I said no; I don't know whether that matters. After turning it off, the app passwords link is still available, and my applications still login fine.

Click on "Remove", and each account will show an "X" next to it. Just click the "X" next to the account you wish to remove, and then click "Done" at the bottom.
TOTP 2FA can only be used as a secondary/backup 2-factor authentication method on Google accounts, and you must set up 2-factor authentication with one of the three supported primary 2FA methods (I suggest using your FIDO U2F security key — see below for instructions on getting that working) prior to being able to set up and use TOTP as a 2FA method with ...
No, Google does not recycle email addresses.
Google...has confirmed to Webwereld that it does not recycle unused accounts. Users can delete their accounts, but this "won't free up your username. Once you delete your Gmail address, you won't be able to use that same username (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the future," Google says on its site.
