chihao,

I'm not too sure that I can explain it, but if one of the choices was " A letter by Mark Twain, written in the same year as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", it would be acceptable. Not great, but acceptable.

So this question isn't entirely related to your issue.

The guy who runs sentencecorrection.com can probably explain it pretty well...

whereas, When we say, same year as....we are comparing.

"The same .....as " compares the book not the year.
"the same....as...of" wud have been better.
