Quantitative Determiners


Determiners are modifiers of nouns. They can provide a wide range of information.

Quantitative determiners or quantifiers are used to indicate the quantity of something. {see Quantitative Determiners, A1 Level}

We use quantitative determiners to describe the quantity of something. You can find the main quantitative determiners below:

  • None (of);
  • A number of;
  • Enough (of);
  • A lot (of);
  • Most (of);
  • All (of).
  1. I have three leather jackets, he has none.
    None of their children has dark skin.
  2. A number of pilots were waiting.
  3. There isn’t enough red wine for everyone.
    There are enough of us to get the group price.
  4. A lot can happen in a long trip.
    A lot of things can happen in a long trip.
  5. This plant has the most strawberries.
    Most of the students in our university are from France.
  6. All my friends like drawing.
    All of my friends like drawing.

We use quantitative determiners to indicate the quantity of something.

  1. None (of) (not any, not one or no person);
  2. A number of (more than two but fewer than many);
  3. Enough (of) (quantity, quality, or scope that meets requirements, demands, or expectations);
  4. A lot (of) (a large number in quantity, scale or degree);
  5. Most (of) (greatest in quantity, scale, or degree, majority);
  6. All (of) (every one or every thing, the entire amount or number).

We use Determiners to modify nouns. Determiners which indicate the quantity of something are quantitative determiners.

The main quantifiers are: None (of), a number of, enough (of), a lot (of), most (of) and all (of).

For example:
— “Most of my friends are rich.
— “All my troubles seem far away.”

The quantitative determiner shows the quantity of the object.
