My ans is A
//ism--> require that at the ending of the answer choices. Eliminate B,C,D
In E, it is the run on sentence (2 sentences without conjunction)--> A remains

We need a 'that' in the end of the underline portion to make it parallel to 'and that the government...'
Hencee only A and E are left...
With E... it forms a run off sentence and hence is rejected...

I would go with A....!

There is an aspect of altered intent to this question, which seems to have been overlooked so far. The passage states that ‘However much United States voters “may agree”. This “may agree” part is an important intent of the text. Changing the ‘may agree’ to “agreement” in B and E and simply to “agree” in choice C indulges in substantial alteration of intent.

This leaves us with choices A and D; D is however woefully inadequate in llism, by dropping the connector “that” in the first part.

I don't feel like going with any of the choices ,
Even if I go by Jeeteshsingh's logic and narrow down to A , I still feel that many shd characterize united states voters.
Sm1 please explain...????

Thanks for posting with underline jeeteshsingh, it really helps with these sc problems on the forum.

@ raths are you referring to the usage of many vs. much? If so, many would be incorrect here because the sentence isn't requiring the number of voters that agree but rather to the extent the voters agree (how much they agree the govt spends too much). This is needed for the contrast in the second half of the sentence.

yea. we cannot use much with voters (countable). I went with D which sounded much better except 'that' is missing at the end

+1 A

Parallelism requires "that".
We need a subordinator, "however", to avoid a run on sentence.

Just want to elaborate your answer a bit.

E is wrong because "may agree" in A is totally different from "an agreement" in E.

Regards.

Does the sentence mean something like , "however much may the extent of agreement be". I still do not get the concept of "much" here as it seems to be talking about U.S voters who are countable.

Agreement changes the meaning. Underlines sentence shows probability "may agree".
