OK one more time:
Quieres algunas manzanas? Do you want a few (i.e., some) apples? Si, quiero algunas manzanas. Yes, I want a few (i.e., some) apples. Cúantas quiere? How many do you want? Quiero varias...como seis. I want several, like six.
Quieres agua? Do you want some (indefinite or uncountable amount of) water? Si, permítame dos vasos, uno para mi, otro para mi amigo. Yes, may I have two glasses, one for me and one for my friend.
Read the preceding post by Scott about indefinite or uncountable amounts. And then, as the old joke says...how do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, man, practice.
