小Q科普第五波：as much as&as many as&as well as知多少？
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.
【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.
(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
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
(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.
