    for all numbers and sometimes demonstrative pronoun
    一座山,2个人,三朵花,4栋房子
    那个人,这辆车 ect

    for all numbers。
    when a noun is counted, there is always a classifier between the number and the noun.
    that is a characteristic of chinese language。

    between 这/那 and the noun
    or
    between the quantity and the noun
    however
    sometimes they are skipped if talking about people
    for no real reason
