IMO negation of many is some......and negation of most is 'a few' or 'a minority '.....
many cant be equal to some

Most means a majority. Hence logical negation would be a minority (less than majority).

Many means sizeable. Hence logical negation would be not sizeable.

Some Vs Many : This is interesting. In real world these two are treated as opposites. But as far as i know, in GMAT world some means "one or more". many means "sizeable". Hence, there can be overlap between "many" and "some" .
