Hello, everyone.

I would like to clarify some ideas about SC #132 in Official Guide.

The answer is choice (E) "as many as are enrolled in"

I feel this sentence is a little strange, and it seems omitted some words.

Could you tell me or something else whether the original sentence is "as many people as are enrolled in", the sentence which people is omitted?

Thank you very much.

Yes you are correct. We are comparing the number of people.

132. According to a study by the Carnegie Foundation for the advancement of Teaching, companies in the United States are providing job training and general education for nearly eight million people, about equivalent to the enrollment of the nation's four-year colleges and universities.

(A) equivalent to the enrollment of
(B) the equivalent of those enrolled in
(C) equal to those who are enrolled in
(D) as many as the enrollment of
(E) as many people as are enrolled in------------------(in the actual choice, people is omitted)

Hope this helps.

Hello, buddy
Is it as many people as are enrolled or as many as people are enrolled ?

And why can we ommit it?

Is this sentence, some books said the second as is a relative pronoun?

Isn't is a conjunction? which one is true?

thank you very much.

As Many As is used with countable nouns

Usual usage:

ex 1 : Class A has as many students as Class B
ex 2 : Class A has as many as five students------------ (is long, but is correct)

Present usage :

Class A has nearly five students, about as many as are enrolled in Class B

we can sometimes omit the noun in between as many........... as. As in the two examples shown already.
the omitted noun, however, must be equal to the noun imediately precceing the expression as many as.
