## 224-liter/s

Hello all

When we mean (one liter), we just say it. But what about other numbers?
2 liter/2liters?
1.5 liter/1.5 liters?

Regards

Matilda

I think you should spell it 'litre' and not 'liter'.The teachers might help for your question.

Hi Matilda. In BE it is litre/litres but there may be a different usage for other native English speakers. You may see examples such as 2 litre bottle or 1.5 litre can, but of course the singular is used because you are talking about the container. If you are only using 1.5 or 2 then you use litres.

consider the following sentence:
this bottle contains 2 liter/liters.
which one is correct?

2 litres definitely.

Shouldn't we say as:'This bottle contain...' or why you use 'contains' there?

## Re: 224-liter/s

(this bottle) is our sublect and we can replace it by IT. so the verb should be CONTAINS

Oops...I just remembered the rules for it!

Just to note that, as Davy has said, the correct BE spelling is 'litre', whereas 'liter' is the correct spelling in AmE.

As he said, "The bottle contains 1.5/2 litres(liters)". 'Litre' is correct ONLY for '1 litre' - every other quantity requires the plural.
