    like/as

    Are these sentences correct:


    1-You are mistaken about this case, like about the others.
    2-You are mistaken about this case, as about the others.


    3-You are mistaken about this case, like you are about the others.
    4-You are mistaken about this case, as you are about the others.

    1 You are mistaken about this case, like the others.

    3 & 4 You will hear both used, though some may argue that you shouldn't use like there.

    I feel that your version is ambiguous.

    1a. You are mistaken about this case, like you are about the other cases.
    1b. You are mistaken about this case, just like the others are mistaken about this case also.

    I would go for:
    You are mistaken about this case, like you are about the other ones.
