    quantifiers

    Hello dearest teachers,
    Could you be so kind to help me with these sentences, please?
    Am I using correctly "how much" and "how many" in these sentences or am I wrong?

    How much fast food do you eat a week?

    How much TV do you watch?

    How many clothes do you have that you never wear?

    How much exercise do you do?

    Exercise is confusing me a little bit, when do we use exercise and when do we use exercises? In which context can I ever ask about exercises?

    Thank you in advance

    Please use the Edit Post feature to capitalise the first word of every sentence.

    Re: quantifiers

    Exercises are specific movements. 'Exercise' is the word to use when you are talking about physical activity that keeps you healthy. You can do yoga exercises, martial arts exercises, or special exercises prescribed by your doctor or physiotherapist; but going for a walk, or swimming or jogging is simply called 'exercise'.
