question about "as"
 

Hi everybody!!

I am a bit confused and I though you could give me a hand with it....Confused

They think he is the best person for the job. 

How can I rewrite it using "as"??  I have thought of...

They gave him the job as he īs the best for it. 

Does it make sense???

Thanks a lot and have a great day!!!Embarrassed

I feel you could even rewrite like  this:

They think no one is as good as him for the job.

How about;

They gave him the job as they think he is the best person for it.

Or.

They think he is the best person for the job as he:

·        is the most qualified.

·        has all the necessary attributes etc etc.

Mmmmm

Probably

 "I consider him as the best person for the job"

As is used in this case like "because"or "since".  You can even begin with "as": As he is the most qualified, they gave him the job.
