Difference between much and very?

Prem said: (Sep 14, 2011)  
Much refers "quantity" and very refers "precisely so".

Pleased refers feelings and it can't be measured.

Tejaswi said: (Aug 7, 2012)  
As pleasing means it's a kind request. Then what is the difference between pleased and very pleased.

Ehtasham said: (Apr 25, 2015)  
Much express quantity.
Many express number.

Less denotes quantity in small degree.
Fewer denotes number.

To know "how" you topped the list.

Varsha Chauhan said: (Jul 26, 2016)  
'very' is used in present continuous & in positive degree and 'much' is used in past indefinite & in comparative terms, and so A OPTION is correct, but option C IS WRONG.

Varsha Chauhan said: (Jul 26, 2016)  
It should be "that you had topped the list".

Gayatri said: (May 1, 2017)  
Can we use MUCH & VERY at a time? Like, I am very much impressed by your actions. Is this sentence correct?

Anees Rehman said: (Jun 14, 2017)  
It is correct, but when you use both then the verb must be in 3rd form like impressed.

Mayank said: (Aug 8, 2018)  
Much is used with past participle. Hence D should be the answer.

Sai Krishna said: (Jun 1, 2019)  
Option C would be the right answer.
