    They are as much my ancestors as of any male members of my family.

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



    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Default 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

    To save flicking back and forth between threads, I have merged the two threads.
