    Smile preparing for the text~~~~~

    Does Alan like hamburgers?
    Yes. So much_______that he eats them almost every day.
    A. for B. as C.to D. so

    The answer is B, but I think B.D are both OK.
    "D " , Can we explain it like this
    "(He likes Hamburgers) so much so that he eats them almost every day"?

    I think ONLY "so" is correct and "as" is non-native. (At least, not in the English that I hear and use. Perhaps elsewhere, you'll hear that.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
