    much more

    Hello teachers,

    I have no information about the usage of "much more."
    I mean I don't know whether after "much more" we use "adjective" or "noun"

    Would you please be nice enough to give me two or three sentences and use it in those sentences?
    I want to know how to use it. I really don't know where to put it in a sentence.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: much more

    You try some examples. Basically you can use 'much more' in the same way as you use 'more'.

    No. The third is OK although it would be interesting to know what the cars are more beautiful than.
    The first two are incorrect. "Much more" can't be used with countable nouns. You needed "many more". "Much more" goes before adjectives and uncountable nouns. Try some more sentences.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: much more

    They are grammatically correct.

    I'd have to think to find a natural context for the second.
