Hi, Azz,

Here is my solution set. Please note that (e) and (f) repeat (c) and (d), respectively.

(a) --> (1) and (3), and (4) at a stretch

(b) --> (2) and (4), and (1) at a stretch

(c)/(e) and (d)/(f) --> (1) and (4)

Thank you so much David for this clear reply!

I messed up when writing my question! My apologies.

(e) and (f) were supposed to have commas.

e. He played the piano, as I played the guitar.
f.  He played the piano, just as I played the guitar.

Could you tell me which of the following the correspond to:

1. He played the piano while I played the guitar.
2. He played the piano and I played the guitar.
3. He played the piano because I played the guitar.
4. He played the piano in the same way I played the guitar.

Many thanks.

Thanks for the revision, Azz. In that case:

(e) --> (1) as an afterthought, (3), and (4) as a very strained afterthought

(f) --> (2)
