    as he/him/his

    Dear teachers,

    Do they convey the same meaning?

    1. She lives in the same house as he does.
    2. She lives in the same house as him.
    3. She lives in the same house as his.

    If so, which one is most formal?

    Are these sentence correct?
    Your jacket is exactly the same as mine.
    They are both wearing the same jacket as my husband.

    Thank you to all.

    Happy Merdeka

    Only the first one makes sense. But it shoul read:
    She lives in the same house that he does. When we identify something, we use "that" as a combination with "same"
