    Default a great deal of

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    Iíve done very little for you, and what I have done has given me a great deal of pleasure,

    a great deal of = a large quantity of ; ever so many, a great number of, lots of, plenty of,

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
