    Re: Question

    Much is used with uncountable nouns and many with countable (plural) nouns.

    They are often used in questions.

    How much water/sugar/money (uncountable nouns) do you want?

    How many people/cars/stars (countable nouns) can you see?

    You can use a lot of with countable and uncountable nouns.

    There are a lot of stars in the sky.

    There is a lot of water in the ocean.

    This is a simple explanation, but it should give you a basic idea of how to use the words.

    I'm not a teacher.
