    Question adverb and pronoun

    036.011 Thou canst but admonish such a oneas follows the Message and fears the (Lord) Most Gracious, unseen: give such a one, therefore, good tidings, of Forgiveness and a Reward most generous.
    036.075 They have not the power to help them: but they will be brought up (before Our Judgment-seat) as a troop (to be condemned).
    036.077 Doth not man see that it is We Who created him from sperm? yet behold! he (stands forth) as an open adversary!



    How can you recognise the word as whether its avderb, pronoun or conjunction? thank you very much

    If you can replace as with a pronoun, then it functions as a pronoun; e.g., one who/that follows the Message; if you can replace as with the preposition like, then it functions as an adverb; e.g., brought up like a troop; stands forth like an open adversary!; if you can make sentences out of the words that come before and after as, then as functions as a conjunction; e.g., He is good as gold (is good). The sentences are He is good and Gold is good.
