Quantifier Quiz

Level: Pre-Intermediate

In this quantifier quiz you have to choose the correct word to go in the gap.

Quantifiers are words that provide approximate or specific answers to the questions "How many?" and "How much?".

They are words such as a little, a few, some, many, several, all, none.

You have to take care with quantifiers because some can be used only with countable nouns while others can only be used with uncountable nouns (though some can be used with either). 

For example:

  • There are not many (not 'much') cars on the road (cars = countable noun).
  • I've drunk too much (not 'many') alcohol (alcohol = uncountable noun).
