  1. #s 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12 are all correct.

    #s 2 and 9 mean one noodle!

    #s 5 and 6 need additional words to make sense -- maybe these:
    I ate two bowls of ramen yesterday.
    I bought three packages of ramen noodles at the supermarket.

    Undoubtedly, this is confusing! English is not easy!
