    1. more than one; 2. just one; 3. if together, then just one; if separate, then 20; 4. maybe 20 individual ones or maybe 10 sets or maybe less. It depends on the grouping. That is, how many people per reservation?; 5. 'drizzle' is a noun. 6. 'a light' follows the same structure as 'a little'; 7. There will be...tomorrow. Either a drizzle or drizzles; 9. & 10. Try, there will be (a) light rain tomorrow.

    latter means, last one mentioned, and former means, first one mentioned. For example,

    Are shoes and socks all you need? If you don't have the latter (i.e., socks), you can borrow some from me. If you don't have the former (i.e., shoes), you'll have to ask someone else.
    Thanks for the explanation. I find it very helpful.

    What do these mean?
    1. They are overweight.
    2. They are overweighted.

    3. They are overweigh. (This is wrong right? Is it because 'overweigh' is a verb? It needs to be an adjective?)

    6. This is an overweight car.
    7. This is an overweighed car.
