    as.....as inversion

    Hi,

    -Crouse wasn't used as badly as the other members of the crew were.

    Can we invert the sentence above just as I have written as the following sentence?

    -Crouse wasn't used as badly as were the other members of the crew.

    Thanks.

    Yes. In both sentences you could omit "were" and they would be OK.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
