Options
1. A (repeated as above)
2. an attendance policy that is stronger, or at least so strong as
3. an attendance policy as strong or stronger than is
4. at least as strong as attendance policy as is
5. an attendance policy at least as strong as

I am not convinced on how "5", the correct option is better than the option no. 1? Explanation mentions wordiness and hence '5' is favorable over '1'.
Kindly guide.


Hi,

there are two reasons-
1) 'atleast as strong as' is much better than WORDY 'as strong or stronger than'..
2) we never say 'as strong than', it is always 'as strong as', whenever we are comparing and 2nd 'AS' is missing in option 1..

I went through your explaination and agree to to your observations. As per the given choices 5 is the best.But it is definitely a very awkward sentence.

hi,
just remember that from ACTUALs point of view.. atleast as X as is preferred over as X and Xer than..
even if it were as X as and Xer than, we will prefer atleast as X as.. IT conveys the same meaning in lesser words ...
