I seem to have trouble with two types of SC questions - was hoping you guys could help.

The first is when there are comparisons made with numbers. I always seem to have trouble with fewer vs. less and those types of questions. I know you're supposed to see if it's countable, but I always seem to get these types of questions wrong.

The second type are questions which have very short underlined portions. Any good strategies for those types of questions?

Thanks!

I agree with piyatiwari read the Manhattan Sentence Correction Book. Specifically reference the following chapters:

The Regular Comparisons Chapter and the Advanced Comparisons Chapter.
Also refer to the odds and ends chapter it has good information on quantity phrases.
