Full names for some examples follow:

Q:這句話的底下就是一堆有機物和其全名。我要問的是follow這字是動詞,怎會在名詞後面?不是該寫成are as follows嗎?

As can be imagined, the inorganic realm is vast, providing essentially limitless areas for investigation.


What is almost universally agreed on is that the universe is expanding rapidly from an initial event, during which neutrons were formed that decayed

quickly into protons, electrons, and antineutrinos.

Q:formed that decayed...這邊的that看不太懂,感覺好像與and同義?

The interplay of the rates of these reactions gives an atomic ratio of He/H = 1/10, which is the abundance observed in young stars.

    Q1: it uses "follow" because of "some examples". You can also use " ... for some examples as follows, where I use "follows" is for what is going to be said.

    Q2: Yes, it shall be more correct to use "as it can". In a technical paper, don't use "I, you, he, she, they, we, always use "it", "one" or "ones" (for plural), depends upon the meaning in the sentence.

    Q3: "that" represents neutrons.

    Q4: "the abundance observed" means "the He/H ratio". You can interpret "the abundance observed" as "the frequency of these elements (He and H) that can be seen in young stars."

    Q5: "more or less" means "多多少少". If you still cannot understand it, you can remove "more or less" from the sentence, it doesn't change the meaning of the entire sentence.

    In Q4, please pay attention to "abundance". It is not "abundant". If it is "abundantly observed" in stead of "the abundance observed", then the meaning is "it can been seen a lot" or "many have been seen". since "abundance" is a noun, so it means very differently.
