Thanks in advance

I wonder when I should use words such as proportion, percentage, number, amount, level … in the plural form. For example:

1. The percentages/percentage of boys in 6-11 and 12-16 age groups participating in basketball were/was 89% and 78% respectively.

2. The proportion/proportions of Vietnamese people living under the line was/were 20% and 5% in 1980 and 2010 respectively.

3. The number/numbers of grades 9 and 10 are 200 and 300 respectively.

4. The amount/amounts of beef and fish used was/were 10 grams and 20 grams respectively.

Please help me understand the mechanism of this one. Thank you!
