    Doubt

    Please confirm if the sentence is correct.

    No one is as happy as he.

    or should it be 'No one is as happy as he is.'

    Of the above choices which one sounds more appropriate to you.

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    Re: Doubt

    They are both fine - the first one will sound a bit "over-correct" because we have become accustomed to hearing things like "No one is as happy as him."
