    As well as/help
    Message from mohammad51 posted on 28-12-2017 at 10:06:57 (D | E | F)
    Could anyone please help to solve this?
    I understand that as well as doesn't mean AND,otherwise it does mean in addition, but when we use in addition in the sentence, the matter goes differently.
    Mary, as well as her friends, is intelligent. Here we emphasise on Mary.
    Suppose we omit the commas, "Mary as well as her friends ( is/are) intelligent." Suppose as well as = in addition.
    Which one is correct is or are?

    in addition to : besides >> the coach, as well as the team, is ready.

    The commas are necessary; if you don't use them, your sentence is not correct.
