Homework Help: English

Posted by rfvv on Friday, November 20, 2009 at 3:08pm.

I am still confused about the use of 'a couple of'
For example, if a person says, 'I have a couple of pens,' does it mean he has two pens or he has two, three, or four pens? I know in a colloquial expression, 'a couple of' means two, three or four? Am I right?
