    Having trouble with this sentence

    Could somebody please help me this:

    1) trouble
    2) decrease
    3) excess
    4) effect
    I'm having trouble in understanding what it's trying to say and can't choose between 3 and 4.

    Re: Having trouble with this sentence

    3 is the right answer, and it means earning more than twice the national average wage.

    I'm not a teacher.
