This is getting really annoying. Are to use cò or cia? Duo should allow both as I understand but is only allowing one in in any one question and a different one for different questions!

They are interchangeable, but we'll be changing them all to cia mheud in the next update :)

When is it cia mheud and when cò mheud? Is it best to stick to one or does it vary according to some rule? Is one How much and the other How many?

They are interchangeable. I think cò is an older, less common, spelling.
