Hi All,

I am wondering if anyone know about the better choice
to use among Larger/More and Greater example

"The amount (or quantity) of salt used in the stew
receipe is greater(not more!!!) than that used in the
soup receipe"

Why can't we use more???

Thanks and Regards,
Kuldip

Hi !
I guess When u use "amount" comparative should be" greater" and when u use "quantity" , it should be "more"...
So what I mean is "greater amount"
"more quantity"....
