    as heavy as

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-I made the box as heavy as I could carry.

    2-I made the box as heavy as I could carry it.

    3-The box was as heavy as I could carry.

    4-I made the sauce as spicy as I could eat.

    5-I made the sauce as spicy as I could eat it.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Hi Navi,

    I think they all sound good.
    I think that adding the "it" at the end is optional for emphasis.
    Either way sounds good.
