3. Digital examination of the lungs ( reveals, reveal, revealing) consistent pink tissue.

Thank - you
1. number is (spurs are) but here the subject is "number"
4. she (than she is)
The subject, "number," is singular, so the verb is "is."
Note that "spurs" can't be the subject because it's in a prepositional phrase (of spurs.)
This is tricky -- but in this construction, what you mean is: ". . . less agreeable than she is."
