: I heard both before. I'm wondering which one is right or shall I say which one is appropriate? Please help and thank you in advance.
'has' - much has been said. In this context 'much' is a noun, that effectively replaces terms such as 'a great deal'. So if you think of it that way, you'd say 'a great deal has been said' - equally you'd say 'much has been said'.
