Other questions about "Uncountable"

Q: which are uncountable nouns?

1 tip
2 guideline
3 guidance
4 instruction
5 direction
6 advice
A: 3 & 6 — guidance & advice. The others are all countable. At least, by traditional usage in mainstream English. Actually 4 CAN be non-count WHEN it means “education or training,” as opposed to when it means “a direction or command about what to do” (which is countable). So 4 is a potential “trick” question, depending on context.
Q: There is/are? following two uncountable nouns?
A: For countable and plural nouns, we use “there are”
Examples:
There are many places that I would like to visit.
There are many books at this library.

“There is” is used when there is a singular noun OR the noun is not contable.

Examples:
There is a book on the table.
There is a lot of water on the floor.

Take oat flour and wheat flour and mix equal quantities of both flours.
