Some quantifiers can be used only with uncountable nouns:

A few (euros – countable)

(not) much (traffic – “There wasn’t much traffic on the roads this morning.” – uncountable)
many (“We have many listeners” – countable)

a bit of (cake)

a great deal of (money)
a good deal of (snow)

a little / little – “She has little experience in customer service.” “She has a little experience in customer service.”

a few / few – “There were a few students in my class today.” / “There were few students in my first class today.” (Not many)
