- View SourceHi 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

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"....
