"I don't read much" is not accepted? Wow that's a fail. Why are the possible awnsers always an after thought?
I do not read much is accepted. Perhaps contractions aren't entered into the database yet. Report it.
For some reason, the site is telling me I should have written "I do not read lots" on the quiz page... :( Is this an error?
My best guess as to why at one point it said much was incorrect is because much in english grammar is applied to singular direct objects. But 'read' has the same for all three tenses. So grammatically "read much" vs "read a lot" i think DL marked is as improper, because it is marking it as not first person singular but as a general condition (generally, i don't read a lot). However, it must have corrected because common use does not always comport with strict grammar.
"Much" is not only applied to "direct objects."
It can be used as an adverb. "This is much appreciated." Here "appreciated" is a "predicate adjective."
In "do you read much", "much" is an adverb.
"I don't read much" should be accepted, (and I believe it is now, from what I read here.)
Me neither, but if I start reading, I can't stop haha
Or when I read articles with news about my favorite singers, I read a looot.
I wrote "I do not read a lot" and apparently got the wrong answer. "I don't read a lot" is evidently the only acceptable answer.... sigh. :(
I do not read a lot is nit accepted but I dont read a lot is the correct answer! How is that giod English ??
