If smaller units are being used, 1 cup holds 48 teaspoons. Therefore, 1/4 cup consists of 12 teaspoons. For the measurement of liquids, because 8 ounces are the same as 1 cup, 1/4 cup is 2 ounces. One-half cup is 4 ounces, and 6 ounces equals 3/4 of a cup. When considering larger equivalencies, a 1-pint container holds 2 cups of liquid. Two pints are in 1 quart, and 4 quarts equal 1 gallon.
