  1. no; however Mary can't say "as handsome as me", because handsome is an adjective used for men
  2. I'm not sure about this; my teacher would reply "No" if it were referred to a grammar exercise and "Yes" if it were said in a dialogue or when talking.


  3. Hope this helps...

I agree with the answer of Francesca! But I think it's more correct when you say: "as handsome as I am".

TammyBaby, you can't use handsome to say "as handsome as I am" if you (the one speaking) are a girl.

John: Then, he is as handsome as me.

There is more one problem in sentence 1. We men never say that other man is handsome.Just when we look on the mirror. Emotion: smile

I rewrote the sentence 1, look above! I think it's better now.
