    Re: Much or A Lot 2

    Much is used for uncountable nouns. Time is an uncountable noun. We cannot say times. So we use much. (for countable nouns we use many)

    A lot of is used for both countable and uncountable nouns.

    So, we can use both of them. Am I right?

    Yes. you are right. Say:
    She doesn't have much free time.

    Or:

    She doesn't have a lot of free time.

    Re: Much , Many , A lot of

    I, a native [U.S.] speaker, would say "I have a lot of problems," and "We got a lot of snow." And I would say ""I haven't got many problems," and "We didn't get much snow." But there is pretty wide variation in this area, so if you can, ask more speakers.
