much homework
« on: November 02, 2021, 05:08:54 am »
Is the following sentence correct?  Is it OK to use 'much' in this sentence?

# 1 We have much homework to do today.

I learned that we should use 'a lot of' in a affirmative sentence.

Much is not wrong - it is just not frequently used. A lot of would be much more normal.
Best wishes,

Duncan
