    the difference between "how much he needed money" and "how much money he needed"

    Dear all,

    I'd like to make sure if I'm right.

    1. I didn't know how much he needed money.
    2. I didn't know how much money he needed.

    #1 means I didn't know how seriously or desperately he needed money.

    #2 means I didn't know the amount of money he needed.

    These sentences are correct but have different meanings.

    Am I right?

    OP
