    as much as

    Hi,

    could you please tell me which of these is correct and if both where is the difference:

    1) as much as of them as possible
    2) as much of them as possible

    My google search suggests that it is possible to use "as much as of .... as possible".

    Thank you very much.

    Hanka

    The phrase is : as much as. I`d like to see the whole context in which you want to use this phrase so that I can understand it and give a suitable answer.
    Remember that "much" is used with uncountable nouns ; you can say :
    as much information as possible
    "Many" is used with countable nouns:
    e.g. as many books as possible

    Hi
    I would say :We will be ready to announce as much of the
    organization as possible. [delete the second "as"]
