7/8 cups

There are 8 oz in one cup.

There are different sizes of shrimp - this cannot be answered with any precision.

It depends on the size of the shrimp. Shrimp are classified by "U" (U10-12, U20-25, etc). This refers to the number of shrimp per pound. If you bought a bag of frozen shrimp, it should be marked somewhere on the outside. If you bought them at a meat/fish market, they should be able to tell you. Four ounces equals a quarter pound. So if you have U-20 shrimp (20 per pound) then divide by 4 and you get 5, the number of U-20s in a quarter pound. If you have U-30s, then you have 7-8 per pound.
