    "Cloths" is not the word you need. Try again. Also, "this many" is incorrect. One of the words is right but the other one isn't. "That" before "I have bought" is wrong. Can you work out what the errors are?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    No. You haven't bought dresses, I don't think. Mostly, women wear dresses. The word "cloths" was almost correct. You need to add one letter.
    "So many" is not right.
    "Like I have bought" is not right.

    Here is a clue. To replace "so" and "many" you need to use the same word twice.

    I never bought a lot of (sorry I couldn't figure it out. Is it "many many"?) clothes in my entire life as I have bought today.

    You replaced "that" with "as". That is correct. I also told you that you needed the same word to replace "so" before "many".

    I have never bought ___ many clothes in my entire life ___ I bought today.

    The same word goes in both spaces.

    I have never bought as many clothes in my entire life as I bought today.

    You wrote that I needed the same word twice. So I thought that it had to be repeated twice all together.

    You did need the same word twice. You needed "as" twice, once in the first half and again in the second half. Anyway, we finally got there!
