in the study material, for adjectives of quantity is written as: these words answer the question 'how much' and the same is written for adverbs expressing degree. so what's the difference b/w both????

An adjective is a word that describes/qualifies a noun or a pronoun.
For example: he has enough money to buy a new house. The word 'enough' tells 'how much' money he has. 'Money' is a noun and is qualified by the word 'enough'. So, 'enough' is and adjective of quantity.

An adverb is a word that qualifies a verb, another adverb or an adjective.
Adverbs of degree tell us about the intensity of something.
For example: You are running fast enough. The word 'enough' qualifies the adverb 'fast' and tells us 'how' fast. So, 'enough' is an adverb of degree.

You have to look for which word is being qualified: based on that, you find of it is an adjective or an adverb.
