Problem raised about outfield isn't surprising, given this many errors? (9,2,4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

multitude of sins

Here is my best explanation:

'this many errors?' is the definition.

The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.

'problem raised about outfield isn't surprising' is the subsidiary indication.

'problem' becomes 'sum' (arithmetic problem**).

'raised' says the letters should be written in reverse.

'about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'surprising' indicates anagramming the letters.

'sum' written backwards gives 'mus'.

'outfield'+'isnt'='outfieldisnt'

'outfieldisnt' anagrammed gives 'ltitudeofsin'.

'mus' placed around 'ltitudeofsin' is 'multitudeofsins'.

'given' is the link.
