Please what is the difference between so many and too many?

Generally 'too' means that you don't like the situation.

For example, "There is too much food on my plate" means that you're not happy about it.

Then does that mean unhappy sentences are not correct or what? I may not like the books or that I may be forced to read them.

@Nta that's what I'm also thinking when he is regretting it he should use too only, grammatically D is the correct answer and shouldn't it be "books written by R. K" or "books of RK".

Too is used in a negative sense.

Praveen said: (Feb 28, 2017)  
He is too intelligent to make a mistake. This is a correct sentence what about it @Divyanshu.

Is it also a negative sentence.

Sanjay Sugadev said: (Mar 17, 2017)  
@Praveen.

He won't do mistakes. So it's a negative sentence.

Kappu said: (Jun 22, 2017)  
Too can't be used with many because too means excessively and it doesn't make any sense, excessively with many as their meaning is same.

Is it "by R.K Narayanan " or "Of R.K Narayanan"?

Pri said: (Nov 23, 2017)  
The adverb too is used to show undesirable extremes. It has a negative meaning.

She is too fat.
He is too tired.

We say about reading book always in a positive way not in negative. So too is wrong here.
