Much, Many, Most-Grammar Tips

 The word 'much' is used to say about things that you cannot count.
e.g. I have much work to do.
 Much, papers have been issued in this regard.

The word "many" can be used for things that you can count.
e.g.: Many runs where scored by hm.

The word 'many' is often used just before the words 'of' the', as in:
Many of the players came from our country.
many of the cars were red in colour.

The word 'most' can be used as a superlative ( words that stand for the best in a category, like: greatest, tallest, etc)
The most effective way to score more runs, is by hitting the ball harder.

The two words 'many' and 'most' can be used in the sense of percentage of a total. Look at the example:
Many of the players came from our country. (around 60% of the players were from our country)
Most of the players came from our country. (around 80% of the players were from our country)

You can also say:
Almost all of the players were from our country. (around 95% of the players were from our country)
