In watir, this can be accomplished in one line:

browser.select_list(:id=> 'id').options.count

Try this , storing all the Web elements of Select list in a List and then getting its size.

List<WebElement> optionCount = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//select/option"));


WebElement selectElement = driver.findElement(By.id("id"));
Select listBox = new Select(selectElement);
int size1 = listBox.getOptions().size();

try this,

Select s = new Select(driver.findElement(By.id("#id")));
List<WebElement> list = s.getOptions();

There you have all the elements of your dropdown, and using the size() method you'll have all the options.
