    as/such as

    Which are correct:

    1-Great physicists, such as Newton and Einstein, change our vision of the world.

    2-Great physicists, as Newton and Einstein, change our vision of the world.


    3-Such great physicists as Newton and Einstein change our vision of the world.

    4-Great physicists such as Newton and Einstein change our vision of the world.
    5-Great physicists as Newton and Einstein change our vision of the world.

    In "1" and "2", Newton and Einstein are examples of great physicists. The sentences affirm that all great physicists change our vision of the world.


    In "3" and "4" and "5", a certain type of great physicist is defined: those who belong in the same category as Newton and Einstein. Only great physicists of this type and calibre change our vision of the world.
