To me, the both sentences sound fine. Perhaps, it's just the structural weight and language aesthetics which make the first sound more refined and attractive. Please let me know what you have to say on this. Thanks.

1: I'm as cool and handsome as are you.
2: I'm as cool and handsome as you are.

#1 sounds wrong to me. (You can, however, say "I'm cool and handsome, as are you.")

#2 sounds fine.
Mr Wordy(You can, however, say "I'm cool and handsome, as are you.")
So the difference lies in the punctuation here. Will the both sound fine to you with the correct punctuation?

Note the difference:

Your sentence: "I'm as cool and handsome as are you."

My sentence: "I'm cool and handsome, as are you."
Sorry for the confusion.

Would you consider the given sentence correct: I'm cool and handsome, as you are?
Jackson6612Would you consider the given sentence correct: I'm cool and handsome, as you are?
Yes, this is OK (it is spoken with the accent on the word "you").

Thanks a lot for the reply.

Question 1:
So both are fine:
1: I'm cool and handsome, as are you.
2: I'm cool and handsome, as you are.

If you ask me, then the second is more natural to me because it has usual grammar structure, no inversion. What would you say on this?

Question 2:

I said:

Would you consider the given sentence correct: I'm cool and handsome, as you are?

I used 'would' instead of 'will' because it gives more sense of politeness and request. I save 'will' for sentences where I specifically refer to some future activity etc. Would it have been okay if I had used 'will' instead?

Question 3:

Which punctuation is correct?

1: Would you consider the given sentence correct: I'm cool and handsome, as you are?
2: Would you consider the given sentence correct?
I'm cool and handsome, as you are?

This seems reasonable (though to me, both seem natural enough to be used in conversation). It may be worth pointing out again that the stress must, in both sentences, be on the word "you". With the wrong stress, the sentences may be virtually unintelligible.

"would" is correct here. "will" is not right.

Would you consider the following sentence correct?

"I'm cool and handsome, as you are."

(Alternatively, use italics instead of quotes.)

"would" is correct here. "will" is not right.
First, let me entend my thanks to you for all the help and the patience to bear up my continuous questioning.

May I know the reason for 'will' being inappropriate above?
