In a previous post regarding einiges in the sentence:
Ich muss zugeben, Sie sind um einiges listiger, als ich dachte.
I must admit, you are a lot(?) more cunning than I thought.
choXer explained that einiges has the root einig-, with the meaning of "a lot" and is in the Neutrum gender.
I have not been able to work out why einiges has to be Neutrum, since cunning as a noun (die List) is feminine and it is not clear what else einiges is referring to. Could someone please explain the logic of einig- taking the Neutrum gender?
