Q: In We walked north, following Montgomery as it crossed Columbus Avenue and rose up toward Telegraph Hill. The office buildings and restaurants soon gave way to upscale galleries and residences.
(1) Does "as" in "as it crossed" mean "until" or "as far as"
(2) Does "gave way to" being used in here mean the background scenery changed
(3) What word can replace "gave way to" to convey the same message in the sentence without changing any other part of the sentence?
A: 1. We know that Montgomery crossed Columbus Avenue. So if you say "as Montgomery crossed Columbus Avenue" or simply "as it crossed," you are stating a fact that the two streets cross each other. It's like saying "we followed the river as it wound its way around the mountain." It means that you are following a river that actually does wind its way around a mountain. Hopefully that makes sense.

2. Yes, that is what "gave way to" means. If you had twenty girls in a line, and then twenty boys in line behind the girls, and you were walking past the girls, then walking past the boys, you could say "the line was all girls, but suddenly gave way to the boys."

3. A simple way to say the last sentence is to replace "gave way" with "turned," or even "became," and the meaning of the sentence will not change because we already know that you are walking, and therefore you are moving and not standing still.

Hope this helps you out. :)
