Hello Readers,

We’re going to look at a common grammatical
pattern that we can use with “too” and “enough” and how to
follow those with “Noun, adjectives, adverbs and  infinitives”. Where do we put them in a
sentence?  These type of grammar rules
will be so useful for SSC Exams.


Too  : The meaning of Too is “more than what is
needed”.
Enough : The meaning of Enough is “sufficient”.


Have a look at some examples so that you can understand the usage of Too and
Enough.
Examples

Enough

  • He is too old to dance with those students.

  • She is intelligent enough to get a good score in IBPS.

  • You’re not writing  fast enough.

  • I don’t have enough money. 
 Too

  • He has too many girl friends.

  • Uma  has got too much patience

Now lets see some important points you should keep in mind while using Enough.


Rule 1 – Enough precedes adjectives and adverbs
:
Examples:

  • He isn’t young enough to dance with those students.

  • We’re not walking quickly enough.

Rule 2- Enough + infinitive

  • When she lost her dog, it was enough to make her
    cry.
  • He was sick enough to stay home from work
    today.
  • I arrived at the airport early enough to make my
    flight to New York.
  •                          

Rule 3Enough may also precedes nouns :
Examples:

  • We have enough money .

  • I have not got enough money to pay the exam fees


Now lets see some important points you should keep in mind while using Too.
 
Rule 1. Too comes before adjectives and adverbs : 
Examples:    

  • It’s too hot to wear that coat.    

  • I was walking  too fast.


Rule 2.Too may also come before nouns when it is used with
the expressions too much and too many.
Too much is used before uncountable nouns.

  • There is too much salt in this food.

  • Too many is used before countable nouns

Examples:
