    Hi,

    I am confused about usage of More and Much. Sometimes, I get confused about what to use "Much' or 'More"

    e.g.

    I think compared to java PHP has more demand vs I think compared to java PHP has much demand.

    or

    People completed engineering have more chances of getting selected or People completed engineering have much chances of getting selected.

    Is there any rule which helps to use Much or More correctly?

    Please help me out.

    Thanks!

    Much is the positive form, more is the comparative, and most is the superlative. In other words, much makes a statement about the item described, but there is no comparison with anything else. More necessarily compares what is described with something else.

    I do not have much money, but at least I have more than my father had when he was my age.
