【题目】

Indians have reduced their birth rate but not nearly_____ the Chinese have.
A as many as B as well as C as much as D as soon as.  

答案C

解析】birth rate 是不可数名词,所以选择C项答案,意思是:印度的人口出生率已经降低,但远没有中国的人口出生率低。 

1.as many as, as much as的区别:

(1)as many as 是多达……,像……一样多,修饰可数名词

She has given birth to as many as 6 children.
她竟生了六个孩子!

(2)as much as也是多达……,像……一样多,但它修饰不可数名词

Put as much sugar as you like 
喜欢放多少糖就放吧。

2.as well as, as well的区别:

(1)as well as常用来连接两个并列的成分, 作也, 还解释。常放在句中,它强调的是前一项, 后一项顺便提及

I like to eat candy as well as chocolate
我喜欢吃糖果和巧克力。  

(2)as well常用作状语, 作又,也解释, 相当于too或also, 常位于句末, 无须用逗号与句子分开。如: 

Mary is attending the party, Jack seems to be going as well.
玛丽将出席宴会,杰克也会出席。
