    She has much experience for you to draw on

    Hello everybody!

    She has much experience for you to draw on.

    Does "She has much experience for you to draw on" mean "She has much experience you can make use of".

    Thank you.

    Yes.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    You might want to note that, in BrE at least, "much experience" sounds a little dated. Most of us (I'm ready to be challenged on that!) would say "She has a lot of ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I don't find "much" to be dated.

    Before anyone jumps in and says "Oh, that must be a British/American difference" - I find it dated.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
