    how much do you want?

    Dear teachers,
    I paid a visit to a developing country recently.
    The weather in that country was very hot, and saw hawkers selling
    fruit juice on the streets almost everywhere.
    The fruit juice was filled in a large bucket (I guessed at least 10 litres),
    and was priced at $1 for 600ml.
    I remebered that a hawker was asking me:
    "How much do you want?"
    I was quite confused of what he said at first, but then
    I told him: "300ml please"

    "How much do you want?" Is it a complete question?
    What shall I tell the hawker in this case?
    50 cents please? or 300ml Fruit juice please?
    because both money and fruit juice are not countable.

    Please help

    Kitty
