Using ‘some’ ‘a few’ ‘a lot’

We use ‘some/few/a lot when describing a quantity we can’t count like flowers in a meadow of clouds in the sky. We also use them when we don’t need to be accurate, for example “I made some cakes.”

They are useful when making a comparison for example:

She had a few colds last winter but this winter she had a lot.

‘A lot’ can be shortened to ‘lots of’
