Regarding the problem we recently had with {'ar}, Okrand answered:

Plural if the questioned noun can be singular or plural (it lacks a
plural suffix) and the translation is “how many?”; singular if the
questioned noun is something that can’t be counted and the translation
is “how much?” So {Duj ’ar DIlegh?} “How many ships do we see?” {bIQ ’ar
wIlegh?} “How much water do we see?”
