Hello!

Could you please advise me if it sounds fine: The more regions become inhabited the smaller the gap between big cities and rural areas is. Or I have to put it this way: The more regions become inhabited, the smaller is the gap between big cities and rural areas.

Thanks in advance!

Both are a bit unclear. Do you mean there is a gap between a city and a rural area, or do you mean the rural area IS the gap between cities. If so then;

"The more the regions become inhabited, the smaller becomes the rural gap between big cities."


Thanks for your reply. I mean that the gap between the city and the countryside becomes smaller. To put it another way, they become equal in terms of facilities, life quality, etc.

If I may advise, I would specify a little more what you mean exactly, e.g.:

The more inhabited regions become (or maybe even - The more populated regions become), the smaller becomes the gap between big cities and rural areas in terms of social facilities etc...
