    Default just as you

    Hi,

    1- It is just like riding a bicycle.
    2- It is just as riding a bicycle.

    3- She acts just like you / his /her.
    4-She acts just as you / his /her.

    I have some trouble about 'just as' and 'just like'. It seems to me that sentences one and three are Ok, but I would like to ask your opinion about sentences two and four.

    Thanks.

    #1 is fine.

    #2 doesn't work at all.

    #3 should be 'She acts just like you/him/her.

    #4 needs something to follow, such as 'She acts just as you did when you were that age.'
