    1) a few. Minutes can be counted like 1 minute, 2 minutes..... so it is a

    countable noun. 'a little' is for uncountable and 'a few is for countable. Therefore, the answer is 'a few'.

    2) plenty of.

    plenty- countable

    a large amount of - uncountable

    3)several.( There is NO adjective like 'servant'. 'servant' means a person who

    works for you.)

    several- countable

    much- uncountable

    4) a large number of.

    a large number of- countable

    a great deal of- uncountable

    5) a large amount of

    a large number of- countable

    a large amount of - uncountable

    6) a lot of

    a great deal of- uncountable

    a lot of - uncountable + countable

    P.S. 'some' is both countable and uncountable.
