A: Hmm... this sentence does sound correct (and very advanced!) but I think maybe you do not know what it means. I have never heard this phrase spoken in my life, but it DOES make sense.

You have no patience = you don't like to wait, negative context
You have patience = you can wait, its easy for you to wait, positive context
You have a shortage of patience = impatient
You have NO shortage of patience = patient

Almost like a double negative.

This phrase sounds very bookish, almost like its spoken by a monk or something.

Q: ________ is the shortage that some villagers will soon be completely without water.

This is a question in my English textbook, and the answer to this question is “such“. What does this sentence mean with “such“ in it, and why is “so“ wrong?
A: "Such is" means the sentence will be further modifying the existing knowledge of the subject (shortage in this case). "So is" would be tagging the subject of the sentence (shortage) to the definition or knowledge of the previous sentence, and could not have its own definition ("that some villagers will soon be completely without water." in this case)

Hope this helped!
