1) Mango is known as the King of fruits
2) Mango is called as the King of fruits

I find this “called as" vs "known as” thing quite confusing...Which of these sentence is appropriate to use while writing?

  • Why do you think "called as" is usable? If you found some usage, you might add examples.

In this context "called" means the same thing as "known as".

But if you used "called" you do not add "as".

"Mango is called the king of fruits". "Mango is known as the king of fruits".
