Paraphrasing [rich by Afghan standards]?

High on grammar

Hello everyone:

Can I paraphrase “Baba is rich by Afghan standards” into “Baba is rich by Afghan benchmark”?

Thanks

    No.
    (i) "Benchmark" is not an appropriate word. It means "the approved standard"
    (ii) Even though "benchmark" is already qualified by "Afghan", it is a countable noun and must be qualified by a determiner.
    (iii) See Copyright's answer above.
