    omission

    The construction with the to-infinitive appears to be the more usual one in Britain: "where he helped to look after German prisoners of war"--Brit.

    If I omit 'one' from "The construction with the............. more usual one in Britain.", will it be wrong? What differences in meaning will be appeared?

    If you omit 'one', you also have to omit 'the' before 'more'.
