Savvy
2. OR some pieceS of banana.

Sentence three: When would we use "as prettier as this one"?

Sentence four: Are the following sentences giving same meaning?

How would I know if you are telling the truth?

How can I confirm if you are telling the truth?
Sentence three:

You can't mix both constructions. "Prettier than" is a superiority comparative: one dress is *more pretty than the other. "As pretty as" is a comparison that expresses equality: both dresses are equally pretty.

Sentence four, here's what I think

How would I know if you are telling the truth?

"know" means you make your own opinion as to the value of the statement

How can I confirm if you are telling the truth?

"confirm" means you have to give a proof of the value of the statement, most probably to someone else.
I believe it would be, 'How can I confirm that you are telling the truth.'
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Quite right!
Thanks , Davkett. What would it mean if 'that' is missing in the sentence?
Hello,

regarding the 4th sentence....I think both of the constructions can be correct.

"How am I to know you are telling the truth" is definitely correct.

And the other one is used when we have something in conjunction with it like in "I told her how I am to know that you are telling the truth"
