Two birds in the tree, the hunter shot one.
Only a few were left in the tree? Live or die?
You need to determine the answer
Oh yes, so often do I ask for a crowd of things.2 is a couple. 3 is a crowd. 3 to 7 is a few. 5 to 10 is some. 8 to 15 is several. 15 to 37 is a bunch or if it is something you don't like, then it's many, or even too many if you really don't like it. 30 - 100 is a profusion. 100 - 1000 is a multitude. More than that is a plethora or a surfeit.
Hahaha, have you guys seen the xkcd strip about this sort of thing?I don't think you can answer questions like that.
There are two birds to begin with, one is shot dead. 1 is left.
1 does not equal a few, as a few is generally equated to mean 5.
