1. The boat rocked so much that I got sick.

2. The boat rocked much enough for me to get sick.

(Does #1 mean #2? Are both the same?)

3. The sound was from an iceberg which was breaking up.
(Why do we have to use 'up' after 'breaking'? Can't we use 'breaking' alone?)

  • English -

    The first one is fine; the second doesn't make any sense.

    In number 3, we need to use "up."
