Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    .. people prefer to stay at home than go out at the weekend.

    • A.

      Much

    • B.

      Many

    • C.

      Lots

    • D.

      A lot

    Correct Answer
    B. Many
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "many" because it is used to refer to a large number of countable objects or people. In this sentence, "people" is a countable noun, so "many" is the appropriate word to indicate a large number of individuals who prefer to stay at home rather than go out on the weekend.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Can you get some bread when you get home? There isn't ... left.

    • A.

      Many

    • B.

      Much

    • C.

      Lots

    • D.

      Lot of

    Correct Answer
    B. Much
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "much" because the sentence is referring to an uncountable noun, which is bread in this case. Uncountable nouns cannot be pluralized or quantified with numbers, so we use "much" to indicate a large quantity or amount.

    She didn't show ... respect to her guest by ignoring him.

    • A.

      Many

    • B.

      Much

    • C.

      Lots

    • D.

      A lot of

    Correct Answer
    B. Much
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "much". In this sentence, the word "much" is used to describe the level of respect shown by the person towards their guest. It implies that the person showed a low or insufficient amount of respect by ignoring the guest. The other options, such as "many", "lots", and "a lot of", do not convey the same meaning in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How ... potatoes did you buy?

    • A.

      Many

    • B.

      Much

    • C.

      Lot of

    • D.

      Lots

    Correct Answer
    A. Many
    Explanation
    The word "many" is used to ask about the number of countable items, such as potatoes. It is the correct answer because it is the appropriate quantifier to use when asking about the quantity of potatoes bought. "Much" is used for uncountable nouns, "lot of" is not grammatically correct, and "lots" is an informal alternative but not as precise as "many" in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    ..of the food was not edible anymore.

    • A.

      Many

      Much

    • C.

      Lots

    • D.

      A lot

    Correct Answer
    B. Much
    Explanation
    The word "much" is the correct answer because it is used to describe an amount or quantity of something. In this context, it indicates that a large amount of the food was not edible anymore. The other options, such as "many," "lots," and "a lot," are used to describe countable nouns or quantities, which do not fit the sentence structure or meaning. Therefore, "much" is the most appropriate choice.

      Much

    • B.

      Many

    • C.

      Lots

    • D.

      Lot of

    Correct Answer
    B. Many
    Explanation
    The word "many" is the correct answer because it is used to describe a large number of countable objects, such as people. In this case, it indicates that there were a large number of women compared to men in the room. The other options, "much," "lots," and "lot of," are not suitable for describing countable objects and would be incorrect in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 7.

    • A.

      Much

    • B.

      Many

    • C.

      A lot

    • D.

      Lots of

    Correct Answer
    C. A lot
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a lot" because it is the most appropriate response to the question "Have you got any sugar?" The phrase "a lot" indicates a large quantity or amount, which suggests that the person has a sufficient amount of sugar. The other options, such as "much" and "many," do not convey the same level of abundance as "a lot."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Have you got any apples left at home? Not so ...

    • A.

      Much

    • B.

      Many

    • C.

      Lot

    • D.

      Lots

    Correct Answer
    B. Many
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "many" because "many" is used to describe countable nouns in the plural form, such as "apples." In this question, the speaker is asking if there are any apples left at home, indicating that apples are countable. "Not so many" implies that there are not a large number of apples left.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    ... of her friends live in Poland.

    • A.

      Much

    • B.

      Many

    • C.

      Lot

    • D.

      A lots

    Correct Answer
    B. Many
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "many" because it is used to describe countable nouns, such as friends. Since we are talking about multiple friends, "many" is the appropriate word choice. "Much" is used for uncountable nouns, "lot" is informal and can be used for both countable and uncountable nouns, and "a lots" is grammatically incorrect.
