    Grammatical question

    Few animals can see colors ; apparently the world as seen even by most mammals is a black and white world, not a colored world.
    *************************************************

    With reference to the above sentence I would appreciate it if you would kindly let me know which "as" is between a conjunction and a relative pronoun.

    Good question. What about, a relative adverb?
    Ex: Few animals can see colors; apparently the world as/when seen even by most mammals is a black and white world, not a colored world.

    Thank you, Casiopea, for your response. You mean "as" was used as a conjunction which has a meaning of "when" ?
