"Not as" at the beginning of sentence
flower
anchencia wrote in ru_learnenglish
Hello,

I have difficulties with home task.
I need to rewrite the sentence so that it means the same

"Fewer people are taking part in training than ten years ago"

My answer is: Not as many people are taking part in training as ten years ago (the answer should begin from "Not as...")
Am I right or wrong?
I never have met such constructions as "Not as" at the beginning of sentence.

Thanks.

Not as many examples as it could be.

.
There is an idiom "as many as X" -- including "as much as X" -- meaning the same quantity/number as X.

You could also using "There's not as many people..."
