Student or Learner
I am an English learner. I have one problem as follows:
More people can achieve success than was ever possible in the past.
Is 'than was ever possible in the past." in the sentence appropriate? Which words are omitted?
Thank you for answering my questions.
Thank you for answering me.
But I have something hard to understand.
Can you explain that what is the subject of "than has ever been possible before" or "than was possible in the past."
The number of people now gaining success is greater than the number of people who found it possible in the past to be successful.
Success is available to more people than ever before.
"More ... than ..." is the phrase.
"There are now more successful people than ever before" is not comparing "successful people" to "ever before". It is comparing the number of successful people now to the number of successful people [who found it possible to become such] before.
It's very kind of you to explain for me in detail.
Thank you again.
