    Comparative

    1. He makes twice as much money as me.

    2. He makes twice as much money as I do.


    Which sounds better?

    Re: Comparative

    As is a tricky little word!

    I think both are ok. Plus my own addition!

    1) He makes twice as much money as me/Jane/you/them.

    2) He makes twice as much money as I do/Jane does/you do/they do.

    3) He makes twice as much money as I make/Jane makes/you make/they make.
