Poco/poca and mucho/mucha

Mi abuela bebió poca Coca Cola pero yo bebí ________. My grandmother drank a little bit of coke but I drank a lot.

Why is it “mucha” not “mucho”? Is it because it modifies Coca Cola?

Hola Babita

Yes, exactly! Here mucha is a pronoun and needs to agree with "la Coca Cola", that was mentioned previously and is referring to it.

If we weren't referring to something specific, then we would use mucho as an adverb:

Mi abuela bebió poco pero yo bebí mucho.

My grandma drank a little but I drank a lot.  (adverbs)

Saludos
