C,D -->out
"That" is required.

A -- talks about uncertainity (may agree)

B,D -- vomiting "may" distorts the original meaning


A is the best.

OA is A (OG Verbal Review).
Can anybody explain why "much" is used for countable "voters"?

"However much" is not modifying "voters"

"However much" modfiying the "agree"

Guys,

I am non-native speaker, please shed lights on how is it possible that in A "However much United States voters may agree" could be "much.. voters"? If "vouters" is a countable noun when "much" is uncountable modifier...

Much of us voters means greater proportion of the us voters. proportion is uncountable, thus it is correctly used.

Many of the us voters means large number of us voters.

thanks
but I see another explanation for this from Manhattan GMAT, by RonPurewal:

"'Much' doesn't refer to voters. Rather, it refers to the degree to which those voters agree that there is waste in government, and that blah blah blah. In other words, it's an adverb that modifies 'agree'."

Guys,

One month ago I struggled with this question and must say that you are going in a wrong direction :(. There's no much/many issue. To unlock this question we have to remember that "however much" is a special combination that means something like "Although". I would gratly appreciate if any Expert could verify or correct me.

Well done mate!

I have found this :

Also, however much, much as . Even though, no matter how much, as in As much as I hate to, I must stay home tonight , or However much it hurts, you ought to admit you were wrong , or Much as Karen would love to see us, she can't get out of her prior commitment . [Late 1500s]

I hope it is reputable source

A.
B.Despite the agreement among United States voters to the fact
C.Although United States voters may agree
D.Even though United States voters may agree
E.There is agreement among United States voters that


B and E out--- Change the meaning. There is no "agreement".
C and D out--- "that" should be used before the supporting clause "there is waste in government". Also, although "Although" and "Even though" are very similar to "However much", "However much" gives a better sense of the degree of agreement and the other two slightly change the focus from the degree to the "agreement" itself.
A is the best of the lot.

Ans: "A"

this is question of where all other options except A alter the meaning of the sentence.

If there is any confusion, then just replace "However Much" with "How Much", this is certainly the quality of Adverb to answer "how much?" -> Thus "however Much" is modifying "agree"... A is the winner...
