Adding very:

Adding very The word very can be added to the words few and little to give another meaning to the words. When adding very to little and few, usually it means that there is a very small amount of that particular thing. E.g. We have very little space . they have very few people.

Adding only:

Adding only By adding the word ( only ) you are creating another meaning, adding only makes the words few and little become quite negative, E.g. They only had a little money. Only a few people attended the meeting. Note! You can include the article a when using some nouns or you can leave it out, E.g. They only have little money, Or (a) little money. Only a few people , or only few people.

Examples :

Examples I need few people today. I only need a few people today . Take note! of how the meaning changes. sentence one is not very specific, however by adding only and a in sentence two , you get a more detailed meaning of what is required. The same applies with little . E.g. We need little space. We only need a little space
