    A has as many fans as B has.

    A has as many fans as B has.

    A has thrice as many fans as B has.

    Why A is being so cocky even B has more number of fans than him.

    Terrible! You should know by now that there are two sentences run together there - one of which is ungrammatical and the other is a question.

    Re: A has as many fans as B has.

    Tufguy, if you have learnt nothing else this year, you really should have learnt how to construct a question.

    What is your name? (My name is ...)
    What is that? (That is ...)

    Who is your friend? (My friend is ...)

    When is the party? (The party is at/on ...)

    How can I do this?
    How should I do this?
    How do we say this?

    Why is my answer wrong?
    Why are those dogs barking?

    I am considering closing/deleting any future threads in which you make these silly, basic mistakes.

    Tufguy, whenever you write a question, review it before you post it. Make sure a verb comes right after the question word and you'll stop making this mistake.

    Re: A has as many fans as B has.

    We don't say "more number". Try again.

    That's correct. You could use "than he does" at the end too.
