有關英文單位量詞的問題,謝謝!

Two pounds of fish____ okay.

這個空格是要寫is 還是are?

問題的重點在於,單位量詞當主詞時,它所搭的動詞是單數還是複數?

是How much is the two glasses of water.

還是How much are the two glasses of water.

問題在於,問多少錢,後接單位量詞,動詞是要用單數還是複數?

我了解不可數名詞是不可數的,也就是不加s之類,但可以用單位量詞把它改成可數,那當它被單位量詞修成至少兩個時,它到底要看成是單數還是複數呢?謝謝。

    For example:

    (1) The eight eight-ounce glasses a day appears to be conventional wisdom.

    See http://archives.cnn.com/2002/HEALTH/diet.fitness/0...

    (2) 2 pounds of weight loss per month is considered adequate. More than that is too much. (More than 2 pounds is too much.)
