    adj location on a sentence

    Dear Teacher,

    I saw the following sentence:

    "The outlook for natural gas in North America is much more bullish than it was 2-3 years ago".

    Questions :
    1.0 the adjective bullish describe the noun outlook , is it possible to locate the adjective after the noun and is there any rule for that?
    2.0 can you explain the structure of : "much more bullish"

    Waiting for your kind advice,

    Rinotg

    The outlook is bullish.
    the adverb much modifies more, which in turn modifies the adjective bullish.
