With countable nouns you use many, with uncountable - much.


To measure the quantity of countable nouns you use: many, few.

For uncountable nouns you use: much and little.

Words any, some are correct in both cases.


apple - a countable noun

How many apples do you have?

I have some apples.

Do they have any apples?

They only have a few apples

salt - an uncountable noun

How much salt do you have?

I have some salt.

Do they have any salt?

They only have a little salt.
