Hello respected teachers,


The latter country recycles 69% of hazardous materials, which is far more than the other two nations.

Is the colored part correct? Should it not be: "which is far more than those of the other two nations"?

I am looking forward to your answers.

Yes. It's correct, although I'd like it better if the word "do" were added.

- "… far more than the other two nations do."
or
- "… far more than do the other two nations."
