Read how to use 'Has' and 'As' correctly.

This article is an educative article that will bring to light how use "Has" and "As".

Some writers have always made this mistake of using "Has where As" is meant to be use.

I'm also a victim of this silly mistake. Until the moment I got to understand the different between these two words.

The reason 'Has' and 'As' is commonly mixed up, is because they both have the same sound.

Understanding is grammar is to understand English.

Examples:

a. He is as old as I am. I.e we are the same age.
