Never make these mistakes in Chinese 73

     Zhèlǐ yǒu duō rén.
False: 这里有人。
           Zhèlǐ yǒu hěnduō rén.
True: 这里有很多人。

多can not act as an attributive in isolation. It must be used in combination with 很 before it to serve as an attributive of the head word(人). Here 很 does not hold a definite implication of a high degree.
