.---Did he pick a lot of apples?
---Yes. He picked ____than any of us.
A. much more B.many more
The given answer is A.
I thought B is better. And I doubt if native speakers will say such things. Would 'far more' sound better?
Thanks in advance.
many more - viewed as a counted number
A sounds more natural to me too. Perhaps if the wording, the focus was changed, b would sound "better".
He picked many more apples than I did.
Hmmmmm, 'way more' sounds most natural.
'far/way more' would work too. They sounds more neutral, ie. not either mass or number oriented.
