    '...more than their elders did' or '...more than did their elders'?

    Could someone please tell me whether the following two formulations are equally correct:

    Youngsters declared more activities to be old-fashioned than their elders did.


    Youngsters declared more activities to be old-fashioned than did their elders.

    Thank-you!

    Noot, there is no need to write a new post just to say "Thanks", or to quote our replies back to us. It makes us think there is new information or a follow-up question and we spend time opening the thread. Simply click on the "Thank" button at the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful. It saves everybody's time.
