    so much... so that

    Can you make a sentence using the structure: so much... so that.

    At the same time, which one do you think is correct, or both?
    -The desk is so much heavy so that he could not move it .
    -There is so much noise that he find it hard to concentrate.

    The desk is so heavy that he could not move it. (incorrect)
    There is so much noise that he finds it hard to concentrate. (correct with this minor correction)


    I turned off the radio so that my roommate could concentrate.
    There was so much noise outside that I closed the window so that he could concentrate.

    Say:
    • The desk is so heavy that he cannot move it.

    Or:
    • The desk was so heavy that he could not move it.
