    Independant or Whole

    "The number of desks in the classrooms of the school"


    - Does this mean the number of desks in one classroom (assuming that all the classrooms have the same number of desks)?


    - Or does it mean the total number of desks in the school (assuming that desks are only in the classrooms)?

    It could be either depending on the context.
