    which one is the right sentence?

    Hello,

    I am studying with my grammar book, and I have two questions.

    1. My book has the following exercise.

    Example)
    He ran so fast that he could win the race.
    --> He ran fast enough to win the race.

    Question)
    She has so many friends that she can invite almost 100 people to her party.
    --> _______________________________________.

    I'm wondering which one is the right sentence as I'm confused if I should
    use the word "many."

    1) She has many enough friends to invite almost 100 people to her party.
    2) She has enough friends to invite almost 100 people to her party.

    2. I was studying the exclamation section and there it says that
    the following kind of structure isn't used very much these days.

    How + ad. / a. + S. + V.
    ex. How beautifully she dances!

    I'm wondering if it's true for all English-speaking countries.

    He ran so fast that he could win the race. This isn't a grammatical sentence.
    --> He ran fast enough to win the race.

    Question)
    She has so many friends that she can invite almost 100 people to her party. This is grammatical
    --> _______________________________________.

    So the examples aren't similar.

    I'm wondering which one is the right sentence as I'm confused if I should
    use the word "many."

    1) She has many enough friends to invite almost 100 people to her party. "many enough" is wrong.
    2) She has enough friends to invite almost 100 people to her party. This is the probable expected answer.

    2. I was studying the exclamation section and there it says that
    the following kind of structure isn't used very much these days.

    How + ad. / a. + S. + V.
    ex. How beautifully she dances!
    It's common enough still
    I'm wondering if it's true for all English-speaking countries.

    "He ran so fast that he won the race" would be correct.
