    Can one say:
    1-That is much you have to do.
    2-That is much.
    3-That is a bit much.
    instead of:
    1a-That is a lot you have to do.
    2a-That is a lot.
    3-That is a bit too much.

    Re: much

    #3 is fine, but it is somewhat idiomatic. #1 and #2 sound unnatural, as we seldom use 'much' in affirmative statements.
