Hi teachers,

Do these two questions mean the same?

a) Do you have much money?

b) Do you have a lot of money?

Thanks in advance

Technically, there isn't much difference. Context, including intonation, might determine which is more appropriate to any given situation.
Greetings,

No, these questions (a)& (b) are not same. There is difference between 'much money' and 'a lot of money'. First of all you should know the difference. Actually 'A lot' is used to quantify all types of nouns both countable and uncountable. 'A lot of friends', 'a lot of money', 'a lot of water' and describes an unspecific large quantity. It is also used as an adverb to denote the degree or extent of something. He loved her 'a lot'.

On the other hand "Much" is used a) to quantify uncountable nouns: much affection, not much money. b) as an adverb to denote the degree or extent of something. She's much better now, He was 'much' annoyed (here 'much' means the same as 'very' you can say he was 'very' annoyed).

So in your scenario case (b) is more appropriate than case (a) .

thanks
