Are you scared?
Are you frightened?
Are you worried?
Are you stunned?
(Are they all the same? Can we use all the expressions?)
1. Don't make noises.
2. Don't make a noise.
3. Don't make noise.
4. Don't make much noise.
5. Dpn't make many noises.
(Which ones are right?)
The first 4 are all the same and you can you use all of them.
1, 3, 4, 5 sound right but you have a typo in 5 Don't
1 suggests that the person was making a variety of noises that you want to be limited.
2 indicates that you want him to be silent, as does 3.
4 suggests that some noise is permitted, but not much. Usually it would be "Don't make too much noise."
5 sounds like the person was making various sound effects, and you want him to limit them to a few. "You can bark like a dog or mew like a cat, but don't moo, baa or cluck."
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
