Kindly suggest which of the following two is the correct sentence :

a) Emily has as little money as I.
b) Emily has as little money as I have.

Really confused with using the verb in comparisons.

b) is correct. When you use "as" for comparison, you should have the correct structure "as" + [clause].

Here is a well-explained article about this issue from e-gmat: as-vs-like-correct-and-incorrect-usages-133950.html

Hope it helps!

Can we say that a) is incorrect or is b) a better way of writing the sentence out of the two?

If it was:
Emily is as rich as I am
Then it could be written correctly as..
Emily is as rich as I

Conclusion- u can eliminate 'am' because it is an obvious verb used with I but u cannot eliminate an 'action verb'.
