    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?
    I'd say either 'get' or 'got', but only 'forgot'.

    It would be "Ok, I get that, too". Often Americans use "got" instead of "get" but that is not correct. Beware! You need a comma before the "too".

    You should use forgot instead of forget.


    Because forgot is a past and forget is future

    We use the word "to" when it is towards a direction, when you give something to a person or a thing, in addition to that, it is used in an infitive phrase. Eg. to make, to give, to bake, etc. etc.

    We use "too" when you reckon or as replacement for the word "also."

    For example:

    I also like that shirt./I like that shirt too.

    Thank you.
    You told, we use `much' in only negative sentences. So, I hope, no one sentence in the world where `much' is used in affirmative sentences.
    If I am wrong, please tell me.


    Also, please check whether the following sentences are right or wrong.

    I have a lot of food.
    I don't have much food.


    I gave a lot of money to him.
    I didn't give much money to him.

    Am I right?
