Pls explain the possible usages.
Thanks in advance,
Ex:1: Do you upgrade .in your job?
Ex2: I have an upgraded job.
So ,do I . I do, too
Ex3: I'm very interested in my job.
'Too' in example 1 means I upgrade in my job like you. So and too in Ex 2 means the same meaning of the 1st Ex but the 1st is informal.' Very 'is to a certain extent of degree of abundance,a great number,much, many etc....Your question is very simple but It's very difficult to answer.
What I meant to say is: so, very and too in the meaning of "more"
See the examples.
(1) I am very eager to know your name / It's very old
(2) It's so sweet/so nice
(3) It's too far/too bad
As I know, so is used to express something in a positive way. But too is used in negative contexts.
Whether I am right or not, just I'd like to know.
I'll try to explain in a simple way, via examples.
It was cold. This is a neutral statement.
It was very cold. This stresses the degreee of cold.
It was so cold that I didn't go outside. 'So' indicates that there was a consequence or result. Note that it does not have to be a problem. eg She was so rich that I married her.
It was too cold to go outside. 'Too' indicates there was a problem.
Best wishes, Clive
Anonymous:So is usually accompanied by at: She is so heavy that she broke the scales.
Very = extremely but manageable: She is very heavy.
Too = excessively extreme and unmanageable: She is too heavy to ride a scooter.
