    As what is planned

    "I killed him, as what is planned."

    Is the punctuation usage right?

    Is it right to use "as"?

    Re: As what is planned

    May I say 'I killed him as planned'?

    "As" is an adverb in this, isn't it?

    Re: As what is planned

    No, it is a conjunction.

    Re: As what is planned

    Is it also a conjunction in 'as scheduled/as instructed/as expected/as required/as arranged'?

    In this website, it says that "as+past participle" is an adverb (Number 4).
