that Vs as [#permalink] New post 20 Sep 2003, 06:59
A letter by MArk Twain, written in the same year as The Adventures of Hucklebery Finn were Pulished, reveals .... blah.. blah..

In above sentence mistakes are
1) using were
2) to use that instead of as.

OG says that we need to have that clause instead of as clause.
Can someone please educate me on this: When to use that clause and when to use as clause.
thanks in advance

As is used for comparison. "As" suggests that the subject is equivalent or identical to the description.

that is a relative pronoun which refers back (Modifies) to a noun or a noun phrase.

My friend lives in an area that is very close to the sea..

Here that gives more information about area

Figured it out yet?

Thanks
