Which one is the correct one for my sentence? Why?

    They are both correct, but 'a little more' is slightly more formal than 'a little bit more'. Commented Jan 30, 2022 at 19:09
  • Hello Simo Ita and welcome to ELL! We have a rule here against asking two questions in one. If you'd really like the answer to both questions, please use the "Ask Question" button to ask separately about about "reach" or "to reach". I'm removing your second question.

a little more is more formal than a little bit more.
