    Do I need the?

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask if I need "the" before "creation" in the following sentence:

    This legislation enables (the) creation of non-profit organizations without much difficulties.

    Re: Do I need the?

    I think the is necessary.

    However remember that much is used with uncountable nouns.

    There isn't much water/time left.

    And many is used with countable nouns.

    There aren't many people here today.

    So your sentence should end with:

    .... without many difficulties.



    I am not a teacher.
