    i do not see it as? necessary

    Dear Friends,

    Do we need 'as' in the following:

    I do not see it as necessary that you should be a good dancer.

    Thank you.

    Yes, "as" is necessary in that sentence.

    Hello, Csika.

    (1) I found your question very interesting.

    (2) That little word "as" gives us a lot of problems.

    (3) May I share my thoughts?


    Tom: Is it necessary that I should be a good dancer?

    Martha: I do not find it necessary. = Sounds fine to me.

    I do not consider it necessary. = Sounds fine to me.

    I do not see it necessary. = Sounds "strange" to me.

    I do not see it as necessary. = Sounds fine to me.

    I do not see it as being necessary. = Sounds really nice to me.

    *****

    After consider and fine, you do not need as, but you need as after

    see. Why? I do not know grammar well enough to answer that

    question. Hopefully, someone will.

    Thank you
