« These ones? Those ones? | Main | What Little There Is... »




I was hitting my head against the wall for this particular usage when I came across thsi blog.

Could you please help? Here it is:

According to a 1996 survey by the National Association of College and
University Business Officers, more than three times as many independent
institutions of higher education charge tuition and fees of under $8,000 a
a) as charge over $16,000.
b) as those charging over $16,000.
Which of these two is correct?

I would go with a) becasue :
1. as many independent institutes charge x as (those) charge Y sounds correct.
2. it retains parallelism, unlike b) that compares charge with charging.

Could you please throw some light?

Thanks in anticipation!
