    Not much or not many?

    A-How long are you going to stay there?

    B-Like, for five days.

    A-Not much / not many.

    Which one is correct? Thanks in advance.

    Re: Not much or not many?

    At this level of colloquial speech, either will work. Though "Not many" is better.

    Additionally, ellipsis:

    A-How long are you going to stay there?
    B-Like, for five days.
    A-Not much [time], huh?
    A-Not many [days], huh?
