could someone please explain why As is wrong? you are as good as her. As shows comparison.
I'm glad to help.
First of all, we need a contrast meaning
here, not a comparison
. If you use comparison, you compare 5% of the world's population to what?.
Secondly, "AS + noun/noun phrase"
==> "as" is a PREPOSITION.
There are only 3 circumstances
: conveys function, equation or time/when, BUT NOT comparison.
For example: Function AS
: As a new manager, Mark always works more than 10 hours per dayEquation AS
: I think of you AS my friend.Stage AS
: AS a child, I though I could fly.
Thus, "as" does not make any sense here and is wrong usage.
Hope it helps.
Please +1 KUDO if my post helps. Thank you.
