    請問

    <1>. the number of 與 the amount of意思是否有差異呢?

    用法上是否有差異呢?

    "The amount of"要用在不可數(mass nouns)的名詞上

    "The number of"要用在可數(countable nouns)的名詞上

    例:

    The amount of money he made during his presidency was little.

    The number of cars he made during is presidency was small.

    <2>.

    the number of 與the numbers of有什麼差異呢?

    當妳要描述多層次的數目觀念時要用後者

    例:

    去年的經濟數字(們)不太好看

    The economy numbers of 2019 do not look good.

    The numbers of the 2019 economy do not look good.

    用法上是否有差異呢?

    意思是一樣的,兩個都是"~的數量"的意思.

    但是用法卻不一樣,the number of後面要接可數名詞,

    the amount of則是接不可數名詞.

    所以the amount of water used for agriculture,

    不能改為the number of water used for agriculture.

    <2>.

    the number of 與the numbers of有什麼差異呢?

    the number of A是指A的數量,而the numbers of A是指A的數字

    第二個的意思不太好懂,我想可能可以說是A有很多數字

    而the numbers of A就是指A有的數字或號碼.

    其實我還蠻少看到the numbers of的用法.

    另外,a number of 跟 numbers of 意思都是"許多.大量的"
