    Re: Is this correct?

    I don't think the information about who is "he" is necessary, is it?

    The question is: do I have to put he or him at the end?

    T"he ants worked on their anthill with as much dedication as he/him."

    Without the info of who "he" is, I'd rather write it as:

    The ants worked on their anthill with much dedication.

    Re: Is this correct?

    Oh, I see
    My story is about a boy working on a sandcastle. He sees ants nearby working on their anthill with as much dedication as he/him.

    I hope this is more clear and thank you again for your help!

    Then,

    "The ants worked on their anthill with as much dedication as he has."

    I think I've seen:

    "The ants worked on their anthill with as much dedication as he."
