MUCH

MANY

A LOT OF

- We use MUCH with uncountable nouns. It's frequently used in negative and interrogative sentences, but it can also be used in the affirmative:
 
"There isn't much milk left"
"How much sugar do we have?"
"Do as much as you can"
 
- We can use MUCH in expressions such as: "so much", "too much"
 
"There's so much work to do!"
"You work too much"
- We use MANY with countable nouns in the plural. It's frequently used in negative and interrogative sentences, but it can also be used in the affirmative:
 
"There are many foreign students in my classroom"
"How many apples do we have?"
"I have been in England many times"
 
- We use MANY in expressions such as: "so many", "too many"
 
"There were so many people at the concert!"
"There are too many chairs in this room"
- We use A LOT OF with countable and uncountable nouns. It is commonly used in affirmative sentences, although it is possible to see it in questions:
 
"There are a lot of things to do"
"Do you drink a lot of coffee?"
 
- When it is not followed by a noun, we do not use the preposition "of":
 
"Do you have apples? Yes, I have a lot."
