Why won't this work:

  • En la urbo vi trovos pli domojn ol arbojn.

There is no da, but does there need to be?

I think your sentence does work, in that your "pli" relates more to the verb "trovos". It's rather like saying "You will more [often] find houses than trees".

Perhaps this could be compared with a sentence in PMEG: "Mieno lia montris pli suferon, sed ne koleron." (http://bertilow.com/pmeg/gramatiko/e-vortecaj_vortetoj/ceteraj/pli_plej.html)

Why not 'domojn' and 'arbojn'? Isn't 'n' needed here?

Ne post prepozico: "da".

I dropped the second da and still got it correct. What's the difference?
