a lot better or much better?which one right?
Just Googled for a while. It seems that 'much' can be a modifier while 'a lot' cannot.
For the quiz,
He speaks ____ better than Mary .
A.a lot B.much
You have to choose A, rather than B.
However, when there is no 'then', it seems that 'a lot better' is common.
MuchMary sings much better than Helen.

"We can use a lot better science," he said."
