This is a much smaller house.
This is a much better idea.
meant在此是intended, supposed的意思, 即"被認為"。
e.g. He is such a fat boy that he can't get into a car.
留意such後需緊接名詞或名詞片語，如果是形容詞，需用"so...that"之句子結構，如上例可改為He is so fat that he can't get into a car.
閣下擲下一句則可改為Other songs remain popular for so long that they become classics.而意思不變。
e.g. It makes him smile.
e.g. It makes him (be) happy./ It makes him (be) the happiest man in the world.資料來源： 腦袋

a much smaller proportion是一個noun phrase, 可看成 a 形容詞 proportion.
much 修飾small，加強small 的程度．
meant 用意為, to be watched 讓人看
such... that 是一個組合, 意為 "這麼... 以致". such 後跟 noun phrase ("a long time"). 另外, so... that組合意思都是 "這麼... 以致", 但so後跟 adjective
make a rock musician a millionaire 組合是 make + noun1 + noun2.
noun1 (a rock musician )是object, noun2 (a millionaire)是object complement, 中間無 to be. 例如, She sang me a song.
