    Which word is incorrect!?

    Could you please help me figure out which word is incorrect below e.g.,: she met Mary as long as her friends yesterday. I chose FRIENDS - should be reckoned as incorrect one, right? Thanks so much.

    Re: Which word is incorrect!?

    However, I will offer this hint: If you think a word is wrong, rewrite the sentence with the wrong word replaced with one that is correct and see how it goes. If you can't find a good word to replace the one you think is wrong, one that creates a grammatical and logical sentence, you have picked the wrong word.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
