By the way, there is a book by Salla Simukka with the exact same name (Punainen kuin veri) which was translated into simplified Finnish by Hanna Männikkölahti. I think it's a great way to practice :)

You don't need the first "as"

"red as blood" is also an accepted answer, but they're both correct

Sometimes the options in the app tempt me into heart-wasting anarchy, as here: as red as a banana salad": wrong, but tempting. Plus not much further out than "the cat is on the moon" from a few sentences back.

Are these sentences something to do with 6months of darkness and too many spruce, perhaps?
