Hey Below is a question from OG VR18. I couldn't understand the explanation. Please help me understand as to why the use of "as good as" is incorrect.

This was the explanation provided for the same: The standard formal, written word to express a quantity just short of everything is almost, not most. With animate entities such as people, who(m) is preferred over which. For all but a few exceptional verbs, adverbial modifiers (well) are correct as opposed to adjectival ones (good).

Although almost and whom are fine, good is not.
