The concert this weekend promises to attract an even greater amount of people than attended the last one.
a) an even greater amount of people
b) an even larger amount of people
c) an amount of people even greater
d) a number of even larger
e) an even greater number of people
First, we split between "amount of people" and "number of people". Clearly, "number of people" is correct
A, B, C are out.
D changes meaning because "larger" is an adjective that modifies "people". So it means "larger people" go to the concert.
E is correct. because
(1) greater number ==> correct idiom
(2) number of people ==> correct.
Hope it helps.
Please +1 KUDO if my post helps. Thank you.
