Quarts

The US liquid quart is a unit of fluid volume equal to one fourth of a gallon, two pints, or four cups. The liquid quart should not be confused with the dry quart (US) or the imperial quart, which are different units.

The quart is a US customary unit of volume. Quarts can be abbreviated as qt, for example 1 quart can be written as 1 qt.

Cups

The cup is a unit of volume equal to 16 tablespoons or 8 fluid ounces. The cup should not be confused with the metric cup or the teacup, which are different units of volume. One cup is equal to just under 236.6 milliliters, but in nutrition labelling, one cup is equal to 240 milliliters.[1]

The cup is a US customary unit of volume. Cups can be abbreviated as c, and are also sometimes abbreviated as C. For example, 1 cup can be written as 1 c or 1 C.
