.
Briefly:

Many and much mean a lot. Many is for countable nouns (many peanuts) and much is for uncountable nouns (much peanut butter).

Some is not as much or many.

Hi Randolf,

Let's put these words in context:

Teacher to student:

You've made many mistakes in your essay. You have made some progress but not much, I'm afraid.
