    high / large proportion

    There was an academic conference.
    The proportion of presentation time was large (high?) in the conference.

    In the above sentence, which of "large" or "high" is correct?

    Re: high / large proportion

    When the adjectives are at a distance from the noun, as in your sentence, 'high' sound better to me.

    When they are together as in your title, there's not much difference. Click here.
