Practice for 11/12
I don't agree George's explanation, as far as I know, there are no concepts about countable noun and uncountable noun.
Sometimes we can use both:
多少+ measure word+noun
are both OK
are all OK
水 and 钱 are both uncountable in English
Why we ask 你有多少作业? is not because homework is uncountable, it because we don't know how to pick the measure word.
the answer of "你有多少作业?" might be
You see, there are two different measure word.
we don't know the type of homework, then we don't know how to pick the measure word, then we just omitted it.
first: most of time, we put 了 after verb.
second:阅读and提are both happened in the past.
usually we don't use two 了s in one sentence
so we usually have to option
1.The main question is you have read it or not. so the 了 after 阅读 cannot be omitted. we just omitted the second.
2. we replace the second 了 with another word.
How much homework do you need to do?
Did you read the book I mentioned? I am particularly concerned about my
placement of 了 in the second sentence - a source I use to study with said that
with 吗 it is placed near the end like that, but I would have put it after 读。谢谢你们
