    Since and As

    As I started with work in this week, I would able to complete the entire work within the next week. But I will be ready to give demo in the next wednesday.

    Since I started with work in this week, I would able to complete the entire work within the next week. But I will be ready to give demo in the next wednesday.

    How the above two sentences differs by using 'as' and 'since'?
    And also correct the grammar mistakes.

    Also correct the grammar mistakes.
    'Since' is similar to 'because' or 'although'.
    Using 'as' means describing it as it is happening.

    'As' shouldn't be used for future tense as it describes somethings that has happened or is happening.

    The first sentence has the wrong tense.
    The second sentence has been corrected in a few places.
    Starting a sentence with a 'but' in this type of context doesn't sound good.

    This is grammatically incorrect!

    I can understand it better if you explain why it is incorrect.

    Because another clause is missing.

    Is it correct to use 'however' instead of 'but'?
