    Re: so vs such

    Given your example sentence, the following holds true: so modifies adjectives, and such modifies nouns:

    Ex: such a wonderful book
    Ex: so wonderful

    What kind of phrase would the words so and such modify in your example sentence?

    Does that help?

    I can understand that such is the correct answer.
