Why is "much" not acceptable for "viel"
It sounds a bit awkward in English.
It doesn't, you could easily say that someone eats much.
No, that doesn't sound right. You could say someone doesn't eat much, though.
because that would be proper english, and god forbid a neo liberal platform teach proper english
Why starken? Imho Should be starke
Nominative adjective of plurals get +n if there is an article
It didn't ask for English - it had the German in bubbles to choose.
Why doesn't the verb typically go at the end?
Edit: Doesn't the verb typically go at the end?
Not at all, it typically goes in second position, which is where it is here...
Seine starken Söhne = subject, 1st position
essen = verb, 2nd position
"His strong sons eat much." should be accepted.
No, it sounds like very bad English. Only for negation do we use "much" at the end.
"He eats a lot" is correct,
"He doesn't eat a lot" is correct,
"He doesn't eat much" is correct,
but "He eats much" doesn't sound good at all.
