Such as
Usually, such
as
is used to present an example or examples of something we have
referred to. When we introduce a list of examples, we use a comma before such
as
. However, if we present only one example, the coma is not used before
such
as.
1.     Junk foods, such as Pizza and Burger, are not
good for health.
2.     We are planning to visit a historic monument
such as Charminar this summer.
We can use like instead of such as to present
examples; but in formal contexts such as is always preferred.
Ú Nota bene
1.     Do not use only as to present examples:
People like tearjerker dramas, such as The Lady with the
Broom and The Weeping Widow.
Not: as The Lady with the Broom and The Weeping Widow
2.     Do not use such as to compare things:
The school
children wore Khaki coloured uniforms like the military uniforms.
