    Default gammar

    Teacher,
    I'm poor in english grammar. I'm learning basic grammar still and I need your help.
    Please, check the grammar of the following sentences:
    1. Do you think she can live with me or not?
    2.The garbage can is much much much smellier than exrement.
    (Can I use "much" in this sentence or it's better to use "more"? What if I want to emphasize the word "much", how can I make the right sentence?
    3. Do you know where the worshiping gods happen every moment?

    Thank you so much.

    Please, check the grammar of the following sentences:
    1. Do you think whether she can live with me or not?
    2.The garbage can is (much much -not needed) much smellier than exrement.
    (Can I use "much" in this sentence or it's better to use "more"? What if I want to emphasize the word "much", how can I make the right sentence?
    3. Do you know where the worshiping gods happen every moment?

    Thank you so much.

    1. Do you think she can live with me or not? I think this is fine. I don't think you need that "whether" in there as suggested earlier. Just my opinion.
    2.The garbage can is much much much smellier than exrement.
    (Can I use "much" in this sentence or it's better to use "more"? What if I want to emphasize the word "much", how can I make the right sentence? I would probably stop at two "muches" there. Much much smellier. I might prefer, "the garbage can smells much worse than excrement."
    3. Do you know where the worshiping gods happen every moment? I don't understand this sentence as written.

    (Can I use "much" in this sentence or it's better to use "more"? What if I want to emphasize the word "much", how can I make the right sentence? You cannot in English use multiples in this way. "The garbage can is smellier than excrement" >> "The garbage can is much smellier than excrement" >> "The garbage can is far more/much more smelly than excrement"

    3. Do you know where the worshiping gods happen every moment? This does not make sense. Can you explain what you are trying to say?

    Thank you so much.
