_________________________

Hello,

Should this test sentence use as + adjective + as to show comparison? I believe the comparative form is "as well as" rather than "as well" in this test sentence of Question 7. Could you please explain the difference?

Thank you.

Best wishes,

'as well' is natural here. The assumption is that the full meaning would be:

I don't sleep as well when I am on a soft bed as I do when I am on a harder bed.
