comment Which number translation is correct?
@倪阔乐 no, in this case, 零 is a must, unless there's some hundred(s).

comment Difference between 两 and 二?
What you mean by "measure word" is not clear in the answer. Do you mean 两 is a measure word?

comment Radical Pronunciation - Helpful to Learn?
For native speakers, no, generally we just learn the names of radicals in primary school, such as 礻(示字旁), 衤(衣字旁), 灬(四点底). BTW I doubt most native speakers cannot distinguish between 攵夊夂 either – so maybe not a big deal?

comment What is the difference between 涉及 and 涉及到
及 of 涉及 actually has the same meaning as 到. So pedants would say 涉及到 has redundancy but in conversations people rarely care about that.

comment Translation of “fraction” in a sentence
"百分之 q 的人口" means the ratio = q%, but "q比例" (this is not a rigor expression in Chinese either) means the ratio = q. Essentially different. To convey the exact meaning of the original author's thought, we need to check the context.

comment Translation of “fraction” in a sentence
Let's state it rigorously like a scientific paper. What exactly does "a fraction q of the population" mean in English? (Provided the population is N.) Does it mean "the ratio q / N of human beings is smart", or "the total number of smart people is q * N"? The definition of q is the crux.
