comparing two or more things
help this is for a thesis statment.
Epileptics who are looking for alternative therapies are more likely to have a bias towards acupuncture when the studies show a limited amount of information on its effectiveness.
When the software sees the word more, it looks for the rest of the comparison. More this than that. It doesn't understand context. Your sentence is fine in regard to that issue. You are saying this is more likely when that happens. The reader can infer that this is less likely to happen when that doesn't happen.
I do have to question your use of the word limited. This implies that the patients are less likely to have a positive bias when provided with a lot of information about its effectiveness. That doesn't make sense. Do you mean that they have a positive bias when at least a little bit of information is provided? If so, I would replace "a limited" with "some" in your sentence.
