As I remarked in an earlier post, your aptitude, skills and fundamental knowledge in Physics, Math and Chem are poor and so is your understanding of the English language.<quoted text>
rabbee the conjunctional phrase, is to be treated no different than the singular conjunction and/or. your just being an obstinate dimwit. gold as well as silver, makes it plural. as much as the two as'es are plural as well.
it is not the same as a comparison: gold is more expensive than silver. you have a compound subject, instead of a singular subject and singular predicate.
And, you're supposed to have been educated at Caltech and UC at Berkeley.
Well, I must say that Cathedral School and IIT are far better if a dunce like you happens to be an alum of these elite US universities.
You're rock bottom in Math and Science and yes in English as well.
Anyway, it does not matter.
