It was ____ we had hoped.
A.more a success than
B.a success more than
C.as much of a success as
D.a success as much as
I kind of doubt it. I feel that A is also correct.
What do you think?
I made some sentences, which relate to the formulation "more A than B":
1, John is very much (of) a musician.
2, John is not very much (of) a musician.
3, John is too much (of) a musician.
4, John is not too much (of) a musician.
5, John is not as much (of) a musician as a singer.
6, John is more (of) a musician than a singer.
In my opinion, "of ", in this case, is optional. I'm hoping you can point out my mistake, if there is any.
Many thanks in advance.
