1. Cut long rice cake into 4-5 cm pieces.

(How do you read '4-5 cm'?)

1-1. four to five centimeter
1-2. four and five centimeter
1-3 four or five centimeter
1-4 from four to five centimeter

(Which one is right? Do we have to read 'centimeters'?)

• English -

I'd read that like 1-1. And yes, you need to read the word "centimeters" in the sentence. Otherwise, you would say to cut it into 4 to 5 pieces!! There's a big difference!
