a. A pinch of salt

b. a teaspoon of sugar

c. a cup of flour (Mehl)

d. a tablespoon of oil

e. a quart of strawberries

Actually, it's quit simple:
1 tablespoon (tbsp) = 3 teaspoons (tsp)
1 cup = 16 tablespoons
4 cups = 1 quart
4 quarts = 1 gallon (gal)
16 ounces (oz) = 1 pound (lb)

Basil and parsley is healthier (healthy) than cinnamon.
