When are you going to use "much less than" when comparing?

  • grammar -

    Two examples:

    I enjoyed that concert much less than I enjoyed last year's.

    There is a large amount of sand in the little girl's sandbox, but it has much less than is in the big sandbox in the park.

  • grammar -

    The sandbox sentence is grammatically awkward, with ambiguous antecedents and confusion between the sand and the box.
    IMHO.
