    I think A, it should be as much as, your idea?
    Yeah!! As many much as
    Why? Doesn't 'many' refers to 'percent'?

    Renata
    Yes, but I think percent is uncountable.

    How it can be uncountable if you say 50, 10, 12.36 percent?!

    OH, in the sentence, that the subject is considered an uncountable noun phrase depends on "income". "Income" is uncountable, thus, its percentage is uncountable too.

    Actually, I see no error here. Your idea?
    There must have been a typo in this question. I mean the underline should be under both "do" and "rocks not". And D is the answer. It should be."Being chemical compounds, minerals have characteristic shapes and colors, whereas [/SIZE]rocks do not[/SIZE].

    A symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty represents a woman has just escaped from the chains of slavery, which lie at her feet.
    Hello,
    I think If we replace "A" by "The", it will mean only the "Statue of Liberty" is the symbol of freedom.

    If "A", it means one of the symbols of freedom is the "Statue of Liberty"

    Is that correct?
