I am quite confused between

  1. There aren't much of a differences between those two

  2. There aren't many differences between those two

  3. There isn't much of a difference between those two

  4. There isn't much difference between those two

Can anyone point out the right ones and explain why please? Thank you

    1.) is certainly wrong, the others are grammatical but need more context. Feb 21, 2019 at 20:08

1 Answer 1


Gramatically correct sentences are 2, 3 and 4.

  • "much of a" refers to a singular subject
  • "much" refers to a quality
  • "many" refers to a plural subject

In number 1, the subject is "differences" which is plural.
