How much is "a number of"? I don't know the extent of " a number of". The venue had gone through a number of renovations. Does it mean "several"? I thought it means "a lot". Please help me! Thank you :)

Hi, in that context it probably means 'several'. 'A number of' is a vague term, but it's certainly closer to 'several' than 'a lot of'. I hope that is helpful! Best wishes Steve
