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

(Can ',which' be 'and it' or 'and they'?) Actually, it depends on what "it" and "they" are referring to. Would you clarify that for me?

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

{There needs to be choerence between two kinds of qeestions. '256 spoons of rice' should be treated as 'singular' or 'plural'?} I take it as plural -- "spoons" -- right?
