Student or Learner
It is a great place to live apart from the increasing volume of ____ that passes under my window everyday.
Which one is correct ?
I guess B; I think it may be a fixed match that is used to describe a heavy traffic condition;
However I am not 100 percent sure with my answer. 'transport' seems sensible as well; I just google different phrases and think choosing B looks more reasonable.
Please give a detailed explanation on this subject, thanks !
After I wrote my post above, I kept thinking about this example and I did figure out "volume of vehicles" seems not to make sense because, as you said, vehicles come in numbers. Now I agree "traffic" is the correct answer here.
However, I wonder whether a native speaker would eventually say "volume of vehicles", in this or in any other situation. I ask that because, although vehicle is a countable noun, in Portuguese it is perfectly natural to say the equivalent of "volume of vehicles".
