    Hi dear experts, Could you discriminate between the shades of meaning of "quantity" and "amount"?

    Amount is a collection or mass especially of something which cannot be counted.

    Quantity is the amount or number of something, especially that can be measured or is fixed.
    It seems right to say that amount= how much whereas quantity=how many.
