    As & So in Comparisons

    Hi everyone, I was doing an exercise today and I had to fill in the blank space in the sentence: This car is fast but not ___ fast as that one. I wrote: This car is fast but not as fast as that one. But the correct answer was: This car is fast but not so fast as that one. Can I use "as" or "so" in a comparison? Thanks for your help!

    Re: As & So in Comparisons

    Some people used to believe that the affirmative was 'as ... as' and the negative was 'no so ... as'. Most people use 'as' and 'not as' these days.
