It varies: Most young adults need 7-9 hours of sleep per night. In general the body will catch up when it can. So, if you are sleeping much more on the weekends than during the week then there are probably deficits during the week.

Varies: The average young adult that has finished growing can get by on about 8 hrs/night. If studying hard, or participating in sports, the need goes up. (hour/s) Simple signs of inadequate sleep include sleep walking/talking, decreased proficiency in the classroom, drifting off while studying. Try never to watch TV after studying, it cancels out some of your progress.
