    Martin was as anxious as Harry to catch the train

    Hello.

    Does "Martin was as anxious as Harry to catch the train" mean that "Both Martin and harry was anxious to catch the train" or "Martin was anxious to catch the train to the same as extent as/that Harry was". To put it in a nutshell, they both very much wanted to catch the train.

    Do you agree?

    Thank you.

    Re: Martin was as anxious as Harry to catch the train

    I know that I made a few spelling mistakes that I am sorry about. I also made the mistake of writing 'as' where it did not belong, but what is wrong with "the same extent that Harry was"?

    I see nothing wrong with it.
