The old man behind our guesthouse is as wise that of his wife but sometimes he loses his marbles.

Answer

Correct Answer : b ) wise as

Explanation :

According to grammatical structures, to express a quality and at the same time give a comparison, the correct phrase is always ‘as…..as’.

Therefore, it should be ‘as wise as his wife’.

Another point to note is that ‘as…as’ is used with either adjectives or adverbs.

Example: ‘As hard as’ , ‘as strong as’ etc.

Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
