This isn't an actual sentence, so I don't think there's a way to know whether it's "spoon" or "spoons". No one goes around saying "Cups, spoons" or "Cups, spoon".

The same goes for "I thank." Nobody says that.

Can't Löffel be both singular and plural? I said spoon but it's wrong

singular form must have a definite or indefinite article. Der Löffel = spoon. Löffel = spoons. Ich habe einen Löffel = I have a spoon Ich habe Löffel= I have spoons
