    NOT A TEACHER

    No. Is "people" a countable or an uncountable noun? Can we ask the question, 'How many people are already here?', and answer it with a specific number?

    Re: Multiple choice questions

    I have edited your thread title, OD.

    'MCQs' wasn't very helpful.

    Re: Multiple choice questions

    I did ask someone to answer it & he chose "much". As a result, I am confused which one is correct "a few" or "his feedback which is "much". Now, which one?

    Did you ask a native speaker of English? I suspect not. 'Much people' is not natural English.

    Re: Multiple choice questions

    In any case, C is incorrect, so try again. If you're still not sure, check out this Expressing Quantity - How to Express Quantity in English for Beginners.

    If a university professor of English whatever his/her background/nationality, says something about English, then we are happy to discuss it here. But don't present something that a learner has said as if it were authoritative.
