    Default as

    A-Is this sentence correct:
    1-What is the first thing you remember as a child?

    The question is being asked of an adult, so the person isn't doing the remembering as a child but is being remembered as a child.

    B-Is this sentence correct:
    2-The first thing I remember as a child of four was going to a football match.

    Does it mean
    a-I don't have any memories of before when I was four (That is my very first memory)
    or does it mean:
    b-the first thing I remember from the year when I was four was that but I might also have memories from when I was three for example?

    1- It's fine to me
    2- I could have earlier memories:
    The first thing I remember is, as a child of four, going to a football match. (no, that suggests my earliest memory)
