    as that

    Are these correct:
    1) They are not such good friends as that.

    2) They are not such friends as that.
    3) They are not such good friends.


    Do they mean the same?

    They are supposed to mean: they are not that friendly with each other. They are not very friendly with each other.

    Maybe in '1' something that has been mentioned before.
    -They will give their lives for each other.
    -They are not such good friends as that.


    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: as that

    I'd use 3, but 1 is OK- it could refer to something mentioned earlier. 2 is a bit dodgy to me.
