Spanish quantifiers are words that indicate quantity and they are also called indefinite adjectives: They answer the question “How many?”
The following overview is based on Spanish quantifiers mucho, poco, and todo. It illustrates how the form of an adjective always corresponds to the noun it matches. Apply the concept of number as your ﬁrst step. The singular form of an adjective is used with the singular form of a noun and the plural form of an adjective with a plural noun. Apply the concept of gender next. Use the masculine form of an adjective with a masculine noun and the feminine form with a feminine noun.
