    看英英字典比較準 中文翻譯有時太過攏統

    所以我用英英字典跟你解釋喔

    Amount is normally used with singular words that have no plural, that is, so-called uncountable or mass nouns like coal, happiness, and warfare: a large amount of coal;any amount of happiness.

    意思是說他是不可數名詞的總數/總稱

    像煤礦 幸福這類總數

    Population

    all the people or animals of a particular type or group who live in one country, area or place

    意思是說特定類別的人或動物居住在一個國家 地區 或是地方

    tiger是動物 所以答案是 population
