@fable, for the most, part, yes. However, "many" technically means "two or more," while "some" means "one or more." So, many always includes some (since having two or more or something necessitates you have one or more of that thing), but some doesn't always include many (since you could have one of something but not two or more of that thing). That being said, I've only ever seen a question or two where the correct answer choice draws on a distinction between these two terms.

Does this make sense? Let us know if you have any other questions!
