    Both are correct. We do use 'much' in the negative.

    'I don't have much time' is natural English, but 'I have much time', though grammatically correct, sounds strange- we tend to use 'a lot of' in the positive.

    okey, now I get that to.

    Can I also say:

    okey, now I got that to.

    and what's the differents?

    Say:
    • Okay, now I get that too.

    I don't think there is any difference between the two, practically speaking. (Okey is okay too.)

    I don't know why, but I always write 'to' with one 'o', although I most of the time know when to use it with two 'o's.

    is it "now i get that" or "now i got that"?

    it should be " now i get that "right?

    and the other question is

    do you bring your pen?
    oh, i _ .
    here, which one will u use?
    forget or forgot?
