것입니까?

1. Which sentence is correct? Why?
A: X 씨의 책이 어느 것입니까?
B: X 씨의 책이 얼마 것입니까?
C: X 씨의 책이 몇 것입니까?
What does -것입니까 means in the sentence? Is it based on -것다 (= I think, presume)?

2. Is this correct?
고양이 세 마리가 있어요.
The "세" is basically "셋" that should be transformed because there's "마리" afterwards, right?

감사합니다.

    1. A is right
    B. X씨의 책이 얼마 입니까?
    C. X씨의 책이 몇 권 입니까?

    것 - something, thing, stuff

    어느 것 - which one

    2. you are right.

    we count as 하나, 둘, 셋, 넷, 다섯, 여섯, 일곱, 여덟, 아홉, 열, 열하나,.. 스물, 서른, 마흔, 쉰, 예순, 일흔, 여든, 아흔, 백

    저는 서른네살이에요. (I'm 34 years old)

    if there are counting word, those should be transformed to adjective form.
    So 한 마리, 두 마리, 세 마리, 네 마리, 다섯 마리...

    counting words are different by what you are counting.
    for examples:
    책 - 권
    사람 - 명
    동물 - 마리
    종이 - 장
