Grammar, quantity

Post by Valeriia Nik »

Could anyone help?
I have to pass the English exam soon, so there are some questions.
How many is "about 60"? It's more than 60 or less?
And could anyone explain how much "more than.., by..., near.." is? I understand the meaning, but not the amount.
Thanks!

“about 60” is not exact but could be from 55 to 65, something like that
