    Our problems seem trivial next to those faced by people in the developing world.

    Our problems seem trivial next to those faced by people in the developing world.

    If we have an uncountable noun instead of "problems", what is an appropriate pronoun instead of 'those'?


    Thanks.

    "that"

    For example:

    "The mess we face seems trivial next to that faced by people in the developing world."
