* Use THERE IS when the noun is singular or uncountable  in affirmative sentences:

“There is a pen” / "there is some water"

* “THERE ISN'T” is used for singular or uncountable nouns in the negative:

 There isn't time for this. (Uncountable “time”)

* Use "IS THERE...?" to ask if something exists with singular or uncountable nouns:

Is there a pen on the table?/ Is there some water in the fridge?

Yes, there is / No, there isn't

* Use THERE ARE when the noun is plural in affirmative sentences:

(“There are two pens”).

* "THERE AREN'T" is used for plural countable nouns in the negative:

"There aren't two teachers"

* Use " ARE THERE...?" to ask if something exists in plural:

Are there two teachers in the classroom?

Yes, there are / No, there aren't

We use the words much and many to talk about quantity and amounts.

We use 'how much' with uncountable nouns: 

"How much money do you have?"

Much vs Many vs A lot of/Lots of

We use 'how many' with countable nouns:

"How many students are there?"

The main rule is this:

 If a word is countable (e.g. one book, two books), you must always use an article (or my, his, etc.)

a book/ an eraser         

THE: When it is clear which thing we are talking about.

          the table / the pencils

A/AN : Means "one" or "a single"

            a + consonant ( a book)

            an + vowel ( an eraser)

We use quantifiers when we want to give someone information about the number of something.

When using some, any or a lot of/lots of , the exact number is not stated. The exact number is not important or relevant. 

They are used with countable and uncountable nouns.


SOME:

Some is used with both countable and uncountable nouns: There are some tacks / there is some water.

Some is used in positive sentences: There are some children outside.

Some is also used in questions when we are making a request, if we think the answer will be positive: Can I have some milk, please?

Video: a/an/some/any

ANY

Any is used in negative sentences: There isn't any water on the table.

Any is used in questions: Are there any students in the classroom?

A LOT OF/ LOTS OF

A lot of and lots of can both be used with plural countable nouns and with singular uncountable nouns for affirmatives, negatives, and questions:

We've got lots of / a lot of things to do.
