    Angry Comparative structures

    Hello, this is my first post

    And I will begin with a question..

    I have an activity focusing on comparative structures. To give you some context, here is the page:



    My question is why for activity 2:3 can I not use "There are not such teachers in my school as there were last year"?
    I also have the same issue with 2:5. Can I not say Lucy is such height as her mother? According the rules under 'Other Comparative Structures' it would be correct...

    Re: Comparative structures

    "Fewer" is talking about the number of teachers. "Such teachers" does not mean anything about the number of teachers.
