Thanks for the re-blog!
Personally I think it should be portion, but I see that one dictionary definition of proportion is ‘a part considered with respect to the whole’. I’ll be interested in other views.
Both words can technically be correct, but strange word choice. Proportion seems to imply a comparison that is not made…
That’s true…Portion implies no such comparison
