When to use 'of' with 'a couple' and when not to? Like we say 'I ate a couple of bananas today' and 'Give me a couple more minutes'. So is there any specific rule which we have to keep in mind? Thank you!


It's ok to say a couple of minutes or a couple more bananas also.

  • Thank you Sam! I was just using the example of bananas and minutes. I wanted to know if there is any clear-cut rule as to when to use only a couple and when to use a couple of
