You watch someone lift a 200kg weight. How would you say to someone else that he is strong?
"He was so strong, that he could lift a 200 kg weight."
Using the structure so...that
"He was hardly weak as he could lift a 200 kg weight."
Using the structure hardly...as
must surely (or other adverb) be/ needs to be ... as/because
There are so many ways to say it that, being not native, I can't decide which way to say it!
