He feels his troubles as much or even more than they.
This is an error spotting question asked in my exam, I am particularly stuck at two spots in the sentence . First if its correct to use as much here or its better to use as much as. I looked up for the phrase in Merriam Webster here but could find only one sentence which has used as much in it and I am not able to make out from that whether to use as much here or as much as. Second, Is the they used correct or should it be replaced with them ? What I have learned is that nominative cases are compared with nominative and objective cases with objective, so accordingly they is correct with he but somebody on a three year old yahoo answers thread had suggested correction with them.
