1mL 1L 10L
Twoliter bottles of a soft drinks are the largest size sold. Could you conveniently carry a 10liter canteen? Since a liter contains 1,000 milliliters, this is about one sip of water. What do you think is the best answer?
If you post YOUR answers to the other five questions, we'll be glad to check them for you.

You need to have some idea of the volume in the metric system. Personally, I think these questions could be improved: for example, how larger is the bucket? How large is the can of beans? etc
You must have some idea from your class or from the question itself. Here are some volumes in U. S. system.
1 U. S. teaspoon = approximately 5 mL
1 U. S. quart = about 1 L.
