I understood this sentence's context. but I can't understand which is correct verb.
in this part, "and his rating are higher the more dangerous his exploits appear to be".
I thought are and appear are both verb. but there is no conjunction between them. what am I suppose to do here?
please tell me how to understand this sentence.
A television journalist often travels to dangerous countries all over the world because he is contractually obligated to do so, and his ratings are higher the more dangerous his exploits appear to be.
