    Default as adjective of a noun

    Hi!

    A: Tom tells me that you really enjoy taking pictures.

    B: I do, but I'm not nearly as ( ) photographer as you are.


    a) skilled of a
    b) skilled of
    c) skilled
    d) of a skilled

    I wonder if there is the structure "as adjective of a noun" like a).
    Would you give me an explanation, please?

    Regards.

    No there isn't. And none of the options can fit into the gap. You should check them out again and make sure you didn't make a typing error.

    Always thanks for your replies. Then, Is " as skilled a photographer as~" possible?

    Yes, and that is the correct answer.

    I do, but I'm not nearly as skilled a photographer as you are.
