    "and" vs "as well as"

    Hi the following is a question taken from a site:
    "The word silence may be used both as a noun (A) as well as a verb."
    It is suggested to change the underline into and as a verb. May I know why can't I use "as well as" because from I've checked it means "in addition to" and "and also". Thanks

    Re: "and" vs "as well as"

    You can use "as well as" if you delete "both";
