    1. little (money is uncountable)
    2. a few

    'Few' and 'a few'. The difference is that 'few' means the opposite of 'many', while 'a few' means 'some'.

    Hello, I am 'The French' I am not a teacher, but I can help you.

    First the words few and a few are uses with countable nouns, little and a little are used with uncountable nouns.

    The difference between few and a few is that a few have a positive meaning and few have negative meaning (its' the same for little and a little).

    Example : I have a little time for you (the meaning is I have time to spend with you).

    Hope it's help you, have a nice day.
