    Is this a homework exercise ? What is the context? On what basis are we supposed to make a choice ?
    This question was asked in an exam in India.

    Which part of the sentence has an error-

    I read (1)/ a great deal of (2)/ books.(3)/ No error (4)

    I'm confused between "part 2, it should be (a number of)" and "No error"
