Hello teachers,

This question is not as much difficult as the one we solved yesterday.

What kind of effect does the "much" have on the sentence above?
Or is it even a correct use?

Thank you,

Let me ask one more question regarding the original question.

This question is not difficult as much as the one we solved yesterday.

Does this sentence sound as natural as "this question is not as difficult as the one we solved yesterday?"

Neo,

I don't know for sure that you are, but if you're looking to use 'much' to intensify your example, try this;

This question is not nearly as difficult as the one we solved yesterday.

What kind of effect does "much" have? Well, to be honest, it makes the sentence quite strange! I'd say to leave it out.
