    as ... so

    1) As his older brother played the guitar, so he played the drums.
    2) Just as his older brother played the guitar, so he played the drums.

    What do the above sentences mean?

    Which of the sentences (1) and (2) correspond to which of the following:

    a) His older brother played the guitar, and he played the drums.
    b) He played the drums the same way his older brother played the guitar. (wildly, or gently, or very well or...)
    c) He played the drums at the same time his older brother played the guitar.
    d) He played the drums because his older brother played the guitar.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: as ... so

    Neither sentence is natural or meaningful.
