    A better title would have been 'They are as much my ancestors'.

    Confusion regarding the use of 'as'

    Hi teachers,

    I have again encountered confusion while using 'as' in the following sentences-

    This system is as much help to sellers as to buyers.
    or
    This system is as much help to sellers as is to buyers.



    You are as important to me as to him.
    or
    You are as important to me as are to him.

    It would be very nice of you if you could tell me the grammatically correct form of these sentences with reference to this linkhttp://www.usingenglish.com/forum/as...tences-me.html

    You are as important to me as you are ​to him.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
