That the nerve lining of a mouse's nose contains roughly the same number of olfactory receptors as that of a human's nose.

Why isn't there a verb after the human's nose- contains.

Thanks

You don't have to write that it is modified :wink:


This is a good one and I don't know why :oops:


Is there an option with CONTAINS/DOES?

THe only guess is that it sounds crooked with a DOES or Contans in there wiht "THAT" I don't know the rule though....

When you do comparisons, sometimes the later verb can be ignored.

For example,
I am as tall as he is

can also be written as

I am as tall as he

The second sentence deliberately leaves out the verb 'is'. Both are acceptable forms.
