    I'd like to know if these sentences are grammatical or not.

    Hi there,
    I've learnd about Adverb-Adjective Attraction from English Syntax class. ex)so,such...
    I understand we can use "so" before an adjective only with a singular count noun occurring with the indefinite article a(n).
    Ex) He is so nice a boy. (O) / It is so nice weather that I'd like to go out for a walk. (X)

    I've leared even how,as,too also can be used like 'so'.
    Then, how,as,too can be used only with a noun which is singular count noun with a/an?

    Plz explain me if these sentences are grammatical or not.

    1.They are as great orators as Douglas.
    2.They are too depressing movies to see a second time.
    3.How pretty girls they are!
    4.This is as expensive water as Evian.
    5.This is too cold water to jump into.
    6.How clean water it is!


    Thank you in advance!

    They aren't all correct- which do you think are wrong?
