I've seen both qué and cuánto in exclamatory sentences. I understand when it's clearly the number of something ( ¡Cuántos gatos! ) but when it's something less countable (e.g. "¡Qué orgulloso!" or "¡Cuánto orgulloso!" how do you tell which one to use?
With adjectives you can't use cuánto (only with nouns). So, to say for example "How proud he is!" you need:
¡Qué orgulloso es!
You can use a noun and then use cuánto:
¡Cuánto orgullo tiene!
How much pride he has!
orgullo is a noun here
