    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.
