    Multiple choice option: much/too/a little embarrassed

    Alex felt …….. embarrassed when he had to stand up and make a speech.

    a)some
    b)much
    c)a little (Answer Key)
    d)too

    Hi,

    Can "b" or "d" be correct as well? If not then why? Would you please clarify it to me that why "b" and "d" can not work there?

    Thank you

    Thanks for answering.
    But if we choose "too" on that time we should omit "when he had to" and add an infinitive "to"

    I mean: "Alex felt too embarrassed to stand up and make a speech."

    Aren't I right?
