1, 2, and 2-1 -- correct

3. The eighth square on the second row needed 256 spoons of rice, and they amounted to a bowl. incorrect
I said this was incorrect because it's not clear what the antecedent for "they" is. Is the antecedent "square"? Or "spoons"? I can't tell from the sentence.

2. The eighth square on the second row needed 256 spoons of rice, and it 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?<~~yes Would you compare the last sentence?)<~~I have no idea what you mean by this.

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

In this sentence 'amount' is a plural verb. If this sentence is correct, '256 spoons of rice' is a plural subject. right?

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

(In this sentence the antecedent of 'which' is '256 spoons of rice.'

Then, which can be changed into 'and they'? They refers to '256 spoons of rice.'

In short, '256 spoons of rice' is plural, if we use 'and they.'
'256 spoons of rice' is singular, if we use 'and it' instead of ',which'? )

Thank you for your help. It's Friday!
Have a great weekend.
