How can I make this sentence correct? It sounds wrong to me

The sentence, “Innovation requires more exploration and risk-taking than architects are typically used to.” sounds incorrect tome, but I cannot put my finger on what the problem is. Please help me figure it out. Many Thanks!

Answer

I would say:

”Innovation requires more exploration and risk-taking than those the architects are typically used to.”

The thing is that in the second clause there is a shortened form of the predicate (which can be reconstructed as ‘are used to exploration and risk-taking’).

Instead of these omitted words we need the pronoun ”those”.
