There are many books on the shelf.
The word “much” can be used to describe a large quantity or amount.

The Difference in many and much summed up easily
Many and much can be easily summed up by the difference in their numbers. Much is more than many, and it takes more than one much to make a many.
For example, if you have five apples, you have a many. But if you have 10 apples, you have a much. Ten apples is more than five apples and makes a many.
Similarly, if you want to fill up a pot with water, you need to pour in more than one cup of water to make a much. To make a many, you need at least two cups of water.
