    Exclamation so vs very

    Hello there.

    About "so" in this sentence, can I replace it with "very"?

    It is no wonder that a man of his ability is so successful.


    Please help me!

    You could replace "so" with "very" and it would be a correct sentence, but it wouldn't have the same meaning.
