English Grammar - Clauses

The following sentence contains _____.

We like him as much as them.

an adjective clause
a noun clause
an elliptical clause
no subordinate clause

I think "as much as them" is an adverb clause but since it's not an option, I'd choose "no subordinate clause."
Thank you!

  1. As written, "as much as them" is not a clause.
    Clauses have subjects and verbs in them, and this phrase does not.

    Are you supposed to supply the implied words there to make it a clause??

  2. No, I'm not supposed to supply any implied words. I guess the fourth option is the one I should choose.

    How does this phrase not have subjects and verbs? Sorry if this is a silly question,

    Thank you for your help!

  3. "as much as them"

    #1 - The pronoun in there (them) is in the object case, so it could never be a subject.

    #2 - There is no verb among those words.
