    Post Comparison between to senteces

    Hi. Again I am here with my questions annoying you. Sorry.

    Well I am a little confused that how we can compare two sentences by using "as...as" grammar?

    Here is what I have problem with in two sets.

    First.

    "I have problems as many in our job as you".
    "I have problems as many in our job as yours".

    Second

    "I am taller than him".
    "I am taller than he is (or just he)".

    In my view, because after "as" a separate sentence comes, we can put a subject which must coordinate with the subject in the first sentence. Well, how come this subject comes as objective pronoun or possessive pronoun in some references? which one is correct in each set? please illustrate this grammar because I got stuck at it for a long time.

    I know these questions is so low-level for you to answer but, let's assume that I am an English teacher and I should answer these to my students.

    So many thanks to you.

    Perhaps you can think of a reason why there have been 34 Views without anyone venturing a reply.... I don't think I'm alone in finding it difficult to work out what your problem is. For a start, neither of these makes any sense:

    "I have problems as many in our job as you".
    "I have problems as many in our job as yours".
    Perhaps they're both meant to mean something like 'I meet as many problems in my job as you do in yours'...? I imagine this doesn't begin to answer your question, but I'm groping for footholds here, and don't know where to start.
