    In exercise group 2, the sixth example:
    There’s … rain in Vancouver. I prefer Toronto.
    The answer isn’t “too much rain?” (Because the rain is ‘more than is wanted.’ So he prefers Toronto.)
    Would you describe why the answer is “so much rain?”

      Hello. Yes, I agree that ‘too much’ is more suitable. I’ve changed the answer. Thank you.
