The hockey match between india and pakistan was much exciting. Here, i think there should be very at the place of much. If both are correct then what the difference in the meaning. Please explain.


Short answer

You're right, "very" should be used in place of "much". "Much exciting" is incorrect.


"Much", when functioning as an adverb that modifies an adjective, is used to modify comparative adjectives. "Exciting" by itself, is not a comparative adjective, but the examples below are:

  • (much) more exciting
  • (much) more interesting
  • (much) less exciting
  • (much) less interesting
  • (much) colder
  • (much) warmer
