A sentence correction question..

Post Thu Mar 29, 2007 3:56 pm
However much United States voters may agree that there is waste in government and that the government as a whole spends beyond its means, it is difficult to find broad support for a movement toward a minimal state.


(a) However much United States voters may agree that

(b) Despite the agreement among United States voters to the fact

(c) Although United States voters agree

(d) Even though United States voters may agree

(e) There is agreeement among United states voters that


Why is the answer A? Don't you use "much" for uncountable nouns- voters is countable so wouldn't it NOT work?

"much" here refers to the degree of agreement not to the number of voters.

Regarding the other choices:

B is wordy - (to the fact)
C and D violate the idiom "agree that"
E fails to provide the required contrast
