In a technical report, I wrote: "The larger A is, the greater effect B has on C". Then, a native speaker suggested me do something about "the greater effect" since it's a little bit weird. However, he didn't mention any particular better equivalent.

So, which one of the following options is the best one?

  • The larger A is, the larger effect B has on C.

  • The larger A is, the deeper effect B has on C.

I don't think there is anything so bad about your example, but as an alternative, you might use the verb "affect".

The larger A is, the more that B affects C.

My suggestion as a non-native:

The larger A is, the stronger the effect of B on C is.

You may like to remove the 'is':

The larger A, the stronger the effect of B on C.
