I found these sentences in a book, which one is correct:

1.He escaped death with great difficulty.

2.He escaped death with a lot of difficulty

3.He escaped death with much difficulty.

If all these sentences are correct which one is better? Can we write a sentence that is better than these three sentences without changing the meaning?


All you example sentences are correct and have the same meaning. He escaped death with great difficulty

shows that more effort was necessary the the other two sentences.

He escaped death overcoming great difficulty
he escaped death overcoming insurmountable odds

would be other ways to describe the achievement with more focus on what needed to be done.
