"Compare usually takes the preposition to when it refers to the activity of describing the resemblances between unlike things: He compared her to a summer day. Scientists sometimes compare the human brain to a computer. It takes with when it refers to the act of examining two like things in order to discern their similarities or differences: The police compared the forged signature with the original. The committee will have to compare the Senate's version of the bill with the version that was passed by the House. When compare is used to mean â€œto liken (one) with another,â€

I, while assuming that i am working on the verbal section of gmatclub.com, had put up this SC note. It would be great if any of the the moderators or any body can shift this to verbal section.
Thanks

It should be "the same to X... as to Y

In the posted document I have found :
9)If v/s. Whether: If introduces a condition, whether produces a choice
Whether to go or not to go.
If I go, he will come.

Use of "Whether...or not..." is correct? Manhattan SC note says to avoid "Whether...or not..." and "numbers of", second one is ok but what's about first?

Thanks...

"Whether ... or not" is often redundant. Try to not use it. Only "Whether" is sufficient to introduce a choice. "Not" is assumed.

This explanation is very clear. Way to go!

I mazed with two different explanations. One is in another link in GMATclub forum,
on "Compared to V/s Compared with". and another is inside sahil's doc.
Sahil's document says,
3) Compared to v/s. Compared with: To show comparison between unlike things, â€˜compare toâ€™ is used. To show comparison between like things, â€˜compare withâ€™ is used.
e.g. He compared her to a summer day.
Scientists compare the human brain to a computer. (Unlike thing)

The police compared the forged signature with the original. (Like things)

27. compare to vs compare with
compare to - use when two things are alike
compare with - use when two things are not alike

-- Which one is correct? Thanks.
