I would go with the wording on the markscheme as this is the terminology examiners look out for while marking your exam. Harsh marking is a good habit to get into as it may be more reflective of your overall score. Hope this helps!

i think an examiner would have to be quite lenient to accpet amount of water
because technically amount could mean anything (mass, volume, moles etc.)
it's better to be specific and write volume, which is why that's what is on the markscheme

no it doesn't HAVE to be the same wording, cus normally on the right they will 'allow' alternative answers / words - but you should stick to how the mark scheme states it to be sure
