Yogurt was rated AS less sweet than when eaten with heavier or larger spoons.

Is the underlined AS a preposition or an adverb? Could you help me clarify it? Thank you always.

  • As can be seen as an adverb because it introduces the second term of a comparative. – Lucian Sava Mar 3 '18 at 10:17
  • @LucianSava yes, agreed. Simpler example: Her hair was as soft as silk. – Andrew Mar 4 '18 at 1:34
