    Which structure is the correct one?

    A: You will have as many sections on your paper as the keywords.
    B: You will have as many sections on your paper as the number of the keywords.


    I believe the second one is grammatically correct. But isn't the first one used at all?

    Re: Which structure is the correct one?

    The second is correct. A. would be acceptable without 'the'. "... as many sections as keywords."
