“The proportion of Denmark’s adult population which cannot vote in parliamentary elections has shrunk from 2 percent in the 1980s to 10 percent now.”
Does the person who wrote that speak English? A change from 2 percent to 10 percent is NOT shrinkage. It is a 5-times increase! That means that it’s the percentage of those who CAN vote that has shrunk.
