    Quantity adjectives and quantifier pronouns 

    Quantifier pronouns are used to indicate a quantity that is not precisely known. They are countable and noncountable, based on what is being discussed one needs to use the correct form. Quantifier pronouns and quantity adjectives share many of the same words to express quantity, however, with pronouns they replace the noun in the sentence whereas with the adjectives it is obligatory that they are accompanied by a noun. 

      Pronoun Adjective
    Any Are there any in the fridge? Are there any tomatoes in the fridge?

    Too and enough

    The adjective enough needs to be placed in front of a noun and after a qualifying adjective. Whereas, the adjective too must always be before an adjective. In a majority of the cases, it may be accompanied by the adjectives many and much. The adjectives enough and too are not interchangeable. 


    • Bruce Wayne is a billionaire. I don't have enough financial resources to be Batman. 
    • There was too much crime in Arkham. That's how Batman was born.
