ESL/EFL Test #835 "Downsizing", answer 7

In an effort to save jobs, many firms are trying to cut expenditures, such as added improvements and equipment, before they reduce the number of employees they have.

Correct answer: (b) expenditures
_________________________

I think of "expenditures"/C/ plural form of the noun- am I right?
It means: an amount of money
So the sentence would be: In an effort to save jobs, many firms are trying to cut expenditures, such as added improvements and equipment, before they reduce the number of employees they have.
