Much can be used with US voters? can some explain
In this sentence,
much is modifying or referring to the degree of agreement(which is uncountable) and not US voters, which is countable.
If it were to refer to US voters, the word would be many.
Many US voters support administration's healthcare plan.
Hi fluke, you mean that in this case, much play a role of adverb? Right. The reason is that I see 'agree' is the verb, not noun? Can you explain more (give example) about the role of 'much'.
yes, I got A as my answer. It makes perfect sense. You need "that" to connect the 2 clauses. So that eliminates all the answer choices except for A and E. The second half of the sentence starts with "it" right after a comma with no conjunction to connect the 2 clauses. You will need subordinate conjunction in the first sentence, turning the first sentence into a dependant clause. There is a rule of thumb:
1) dependant clause + , + independant clause ---> notice a comma between the clauses
2) independant clause + dependant clause ----> notice that there's no comma between the 2 clauses.
Here are some examples:
1) I like her ----> Indendent clause because the thought in this sentence is complete
2) because she is nice -----> dependent clause because not only is it not complete, but it also makes you want to anticipate what's next.
a) I like her because she is nice. ----> independent clause + dependent clause
b) Because she is nice, I like her -----> dependent clause + , + independent clause
in option A, the "howevermuch" turns that first sentence into a dependent clause.
Hi tarek 99, can you explain why however can open a dependent clause? Can you give me more example about "on the contrary", "in contrast", "nonetheless" - "nevertheless" in those word starting dependent clause?
