1. For many days, he neither slept nor ate until he found a solution to the problem.
2. Do not add too much oil to the machine. Just a few drops will be enough.
3. During the weekend, a few guests came to stay at her house.
4. I did not have much luggage, so I offered to let her put a few of her dresses in my bag.
5. She added a little vanilla essence to the mixture.
6. There isn't much petrol in the tank, so we'll have to stop at a petrol station on the way.
7. How much work did he do and how many days did he take to do it ?
8. He had painted many pictures of the landscape, but he did not take much pride in them.
9. We had to pay a few dollars to watch the show, but many of us were disappointed at the lack of skill in the performance.
10. Not much traffic passes this way during the day, but at night many cars go to and fro.

First of all, I wonder if we can call ' much ' ' many ' ' a few ' ' a little ' - adjectives ?

This is not a tough exercise to work with, I think all are correct :)
