e. 5

Replace 'too much' with 'much too'.

Here, painful is an adjective.

'Much too' is followed by 'adjective'; whereas 'too much' is followed by 'noun'.

The correct sentence should be: Her failure is much too painful for our family.

Much too

much too + unpleasant adjectives

e.g. much too careless, much too reckless, much too painful

Too much

too much + noun

e.g. too much carelessness, too much recklessness, too much pain
