Hint: A fluid quart is a unit of liquid volume and is equal to a quarter gallon or two pints. There are two different measurements of the fluid quart: the US fluid quart and the UK imperial quart. Some simple mathematics will solve this one.

Complete step-by-step answer:
For converting quarts to cups, there are three cup sizes we need to be aware of:
1. US cups (236.588ml)
2. Imperial cups (284.131ml)
3. Metric cups (used in UK and in Commonwealth countries) (250ml)
When we convert quarts to cups, we get $4$ cups, i.e.,
$1$ Quart (US, UK, fluid) = $4$ Cups (UK, imperial)
Additional Information: There are two different measurements of the fluid quart: the US fluid quart and the UK imperial quart. The US quart ($946.35ml$) is smaller than the UK quart ($1136.52ml$).
US quarts into cups:
$1$ Quart (fluid, US) $ = 4$ Cups (US)
$1$ Quart (Dry, US) \[\; = 4.6546\] Cups (US)
UK quarts into cups:
$1$ Quart (UK, fluid) $ = 4$ Cups (UK, imperial)

Note: We need to remember it as fact that there are $4$ cups in a quart. Some simple conversion helps us solve and remember this one.
