Homework Help: English

Posted by rfvv on Thursday, September 1, 2011 at 11:10pm.

Thank you for your help.
I have questions.

1. The eighth square on the second row needed 256 spoons of rice, which amounted to a bowl. correct

(You said 'correct.' In this sentence 'which' refers to '256 spoons of rice.' This one should be regarded as a singular subject. Right? Would you compare the last sentence?)

2. The eighth square on the second row needed 256 spoons of rice, and it amounted to a bowl. correct


3. The eighth square on the second row needed 256 spoons of rice, and they amounted to a bowl. incorrect


1-1. 256 spoons of rice amounts to a bowl. (#2) incorrect; "spoons" is plural, so the verb needs to be "amount"

2-1. 256 spoons of rice amount to a bowl. (#3) correct

(You said 'correct.' In this sentence, the subject is '256 spoons of rice, which was regarded as a plural subject. Right?
