In my humbler opinion

Planting all these seeds is more involved than I thought.

should be reworded to

Planting all these seeds is more involving than I thought.

With respect to S-V agreement, "is" is correct verb, as it is used for Planting (which is singular).

more "involving" should be used.

Hello,

I was just doing this problem in the MGMAT book and, as a non-native speaker, am really struggling with it.

The answer says: "Planting all these seeds is more involved than I thought"

To me, this sentence doesn't make any sense. First, what do they mean with "...is more involved" -> involves more work then thought? Second, that's how I'd have done it:

"Planting all these seeds involves more than I thought" -> is this right, wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Andreas

Isn't this the correct version ? :

Planting all these seeds is more involved than I thought it is.
