ForbesIf a child showed you his work with one out of ten you might say: That's not very good.

What does with one out of ten mean?

In my opinion "much" is more commonly used in replies whereas "some" or "any" are used in the questions.

"Do you have any money?" "Do you have some money?" Both of these sound natural.

"Don't you have much money?" as a question sounds very awkward. This doesn't look correct to me. Or maybe it's grammatically correct but doesn't sound natural.

If you remove the contraction and read it as "Do not you have much money?" it sounds completely wrong so the answer must be that that usage is incorrect right?

Usually "much" is used for the reply. "Sorry, I don't have much/any money this week".

What about "Do you have much money?" It doesn't sound entirely natural to me however I believe it's grammatically correct.

What are the rules about this?
