Use fewer for countable items (you can count the number of stones she has). Use much with uncountable items (you can't count how much brick she has, in this case 'brick' refers to the collective amount of brick, as in weight, as opposed to number of bricks).

I read the explanation above and agreed, but anyone can explain, the role of 'brick' in this case? I thought this is not the official question. GMAC cannot trick people by only one letter 's' after listed items.
