2. He took four pictures of the house.

3. He took some pictures of the house.

4. He took pictures of the house.

---------------

Are they all grammatical?

Does #1 mean that he took just one picture?

Does #4 mean that he took more than two pictures? If we took just one picture, can't we use 'took a picture of'?

**PsyDAG**, Saturday, August 30, 2008 at 10:20amI agree, but #4 would indicate that he took more than

*one*picture. It is plural but doesn't designate the number.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
