# How many is a few? watch

1. 3 to 5
2. A few means two.
3. I hate to be the boring one here but doesn't it depend entirely on the context? You need to know the whole amount before you can think about what constitues a 'few' of that amount

Okay, i'll shut up and say 3-6
4. i guess it is about 2 or 3.
5. 3 2 5
6. (Original post by Princess)
3 2 5
4 sure?
7. I'd usually say 3 to 6, although as has already been said, depends on the context.
8. Couple = exactly 2

Few = 3-5
9. 3, 4 , 5
10. 3-5
11. 3 or 4, no other numbers
12. 3 i think. I never thought of 'a couple' being two until like a year ago, it never clicked until my dad said
How many is several?
13. 3 to 6 normally, but it can depend on the context.
14. Few is a relative term.
15. more than a bit, but less than a lot

Few is a relative term.
You're a relative term!
17. When someone says a few I think 4 or more.

depends what it is. I think a few is 3-6, as seven is several, for obvious reasons and ten or more is a lot, although it does depend on wat ur talking about, cos a few hours would be lke 3-4, but a few drinks is like 13-14
19. 2 or 3 i think
20. 3 or 4. It is definitely not 2 or we wouldn't need the word couple.
